WHEREAS, in the Virginia service area, Dominion intends to replace approximately 4,000 miles of the most outage-prone overhead lines at an estimated cost of $2 billion, which amounts to replacing approximately 350 miles of distribution power lines per year for approximately $175 million;

 

WHEREAS, the block between Shell Road, Maple Avenue, Fowler Avenue, and Greenlawn Avenue has been identified as an area to be serviced under the Program;
