Meeting to Discuss $5 Million Power Project in Ocean City

Posted:

OCEAN CITY, Md. – Delmarva Power will host a public meeting from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 8 to discuss a $5 million proposed project.

The proposal is to rebuild a high-voltage transmission line along Coastal Highway.

According to Delmarva Power, the project includes replacing 90 wooden poles between 41st and 85th Streets. The company wants to replace them with galvanized steel poles, which they say require less maintenance. They say this will provide more reliable electric service in Ocean City and throughout portions of Worcester and Sussex Counties.

Construction is scheduled to begin in February 2013, with work suspended between May and September for the summer tourist season. Delmarva Power says construction is targeted to be complete by December 2013.

The public has a chance to ask questions and weigh in on the proposal the Roland E. Powell Convention Center at 4001 Coastal Highway Thursday evening.
