Overview & Description

Dominion Energy will replace four transmission structures. Two existing Cor-Ten steel structures in the water will be replaced with two similar galvanized steel structures of the same height. The new structures in the water will be supported by the existing foundations– minimizing underwater disturbance. Two existing Cor-Ten steel anchor structures – one on either side of the shore – will be replaced with two galvanized steel A-Frame structures. The new structures on the shore will be approximately 15 feet taller than the existing structures.

Pending regulatory approval and time-of-year restrictions, construction on the new transmission line will begin in summer 2017 and will be completed by late 2017.
