Delmarva Power to Hold Community Meetings on New Transmission Line

Posted:
SALISBURY, Md. - Delmarva Power says it will hold community meetings to provide details on its plan to rebuild a 60-year old high-voltage transmission line between the Church substation near Millington, Md., and the Steele substation in Denton, Md. 

A spokesman for the company says meetings will be at 7 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, March 18-19 at Greensboro Fire Hall at 116 N. Main St. in Greensboro, Md., and Sudlersville Fire Hall at 203 S. Church St. in Sudlersville, Md., respectively.

The company says it will invest almost $30 million to rebuild the 25.5-mile, 138-kilovolt (kV) transmission line, which will enhance electric service reliability in Caroline and Queen Anne's counties.

The project will replace 190 wooden structures, which range in height from 55 to 80 feet, with 189 steel poles that are 95 to 125 feet tall. Steel poles are resistant to corrosion and can withstand hurricane force winds of 120 mph, according to Delmarva Power.

"The current infrastructure built in 1955 is approaching the end of its useful life, so it is important that we undertake this project to maintain and improve the reliability of the transmission system" said John Allen, Delmarva Power region vice president.

Work is scheduled to begin in February 2016 with completion targeted for June 2017.
