Dominion Energy will have a virtual community meeting Thursday about an upcoming project to rebuild a transmission line from the Lightfoot substation near Toano nearly four miles to the Waller substation on Waller Mill Road.

It will be from 5-6 p.m. According to Dominion’s website, the project is needed to replace aging infrastructure.

“After nearly five decades of service, the structures and related components are at the end of their service life and need to be replaced to maintain reliability for our customers,” according to the website.

The project will rebuild an existing electric transmission line from Dominion Energy’s Lightfoot Substation east of Toano and nearly four miles to Waller Substation on Waller Mill Road.

The project also includes rebuilding an existing 230 kilovolt (kV) electric transmission line from Dominion Energy’s Waller Substation approximately 6 miles to the Kingsmill Substation.

The following are goals for the project listed on Dominion’s website include:

  • Create no new right of way.
  • Keep structures in the same general location as existing structures.
  • Provide long-term reliability and durability without excessive maintenance.
  • Deliver operational system flexibility to meet future needs.
  • Comply with mandatory standards to ensure safety and reliability.

This full rebuild project is approximately 12 miles long and generally south of interstate 64 and north of Williamsburg.
