Dominion to Bury Over 350 Miles of Power Lines

Dominion Virginia Power is currently working on a 10 to 12-year project to bury 350 to 400 miles of electrical lines underground in 20 percent of the worst performing tap lines in the system. Dominion has been burying tap lines in new development for decades, though thousands of miles of lines in older neighborhoods still run above ground.

Rob Richardson, Spokesman for Dominion Virginia Power says the goal is to make the system more reliable, especially during heavy storms. The first projects will take place later this year in east Richmond and Hampton Roads, though Dominion has yet to determine the specific sites.
