Delmarva Power to Hold Community Meeting on Transmission Line Project

Posted: Updated:

HARRINGTON, Del.– Delmarva Power will hold a community meeting to provide details on its plan to enhance electric service in Kent and Sussex counties by rebuilding a 69 kilovolt transmission line between Bridgeville and Harrington, Del.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23, at Delmarva Power’s district office, 118 East Liberty St. in Harrington.

The utility said in a news release that it will invest approximately $21 million in the 11-mile project. The existing 300, 60-foot tall wooden structures will be replaced with 236 galvanized steel poles that range in height from 80 to 100 feet. Steel poles are more durable, require less maintenance and can withstand hurricane force winds up to 120 mph, Delmarva Power said. 

 “This work will enhance electric service reliability and ensure that we continue to meet our customers’ needs,” said John Allen, Delmarva Power region vice president. “This project is one of numerous infrastructure improvements planned throughout our service territory over the next several years.”

Work is scheduled to begin in March with completion targeted for the end of May 2017.
