Dominion has now completed transmission line construction and restoration activities from Aquia Harbour to Garrisonville Substation.
Dominion received approval in 2008 from the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) to build an underground, double-circuit 230,000 volt (230 kV) transmission line in Stafford County, Virginia. The new line extends approximately 5 miles from an existing transmission line corridor east of I-95 to the new Garrisonville substation. The new facilities were built within an existing right-of-way easement purchased by Dominion in the 1960s.
Dominion Virginia Power began construction of the Aquia Harbour to Garrisonville underground transmission line in December 2008. This project consisted of three phases. All three phases of this project, along with restoration of construction sites, were completed July 2012.
Thanks for your support and patience as we worked to complete this important infrastructure project for Stafford County.
Dominion built a new underground 230 kV double-circuit transmission line from its existing Possum Point to Fredericksburg 230 kV line to the Garrisonville switching substation.
The new double-circuit line taps into an existing north-south transmission line that extends from Possum Point to Fredericksburg and runs parallel to I-95 on the east side. A new transition station has been built within the Dominion right-of-way in Aquia Harbour, where the new double-circuit 230 kV line will begin its 5-mile journey underground to the new Garrisonville switching substation built near Mountain View Road.
