As part of multi-year project to increase the generating capacity of its Bath County Pumped Storage Station, Dominion will be moving a large piece of equipment as described below.
On September 9, as part of on-going improvements at Bath County Pumped Storage Station Dominion will move a 60-ton part to the station, slowing traffic along Interstate 64, U.S. 220, Rte. 39 and Rte. 600.
Traffic on U.S. 220 on Covington Mountain will be impacted from about 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Traffic on Rte. 39 over Back Creek Mountain will be slowed from about noon to 3 p.m.
The return trip is scheduled for September 10, and should cause fewer traffic delays.
This schedule is subject to change due to the weather, travel restrictions or other unforeseen circumstances. Visit this page for any last-minute schedule changes (find this page with keyword "bigrig").
Dominion and its partner in the Bath County Pumped Storage Station, FirstEnergy, apologize for the inconvenience the moves will cause.
Dominion will make the moves in conjunction with the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Virginia Highway Patrol, the Covington Police Department and the Alleghany and Bath County Sheriffs' Departments.
