Surry to Skiffes Creek

Surry to Skiffes Creek project is a 7.7-mile 500-kV line with approximately 2.5 miles on land in Surry County, 2.8 miles overhead across the James River, and 2.3 miles on land in southern James River County. This project will supply needed capacity to serve the local area and critical military facilities; support local growth and economic development in central and eastern Virginia; and provide reliability improvements for fewer service interruptions and shorter durations when an outage does occur. Dominion is currently analyzing a Surry to Skiffes Creek 500kV transmission line route, to compare it to the Chickahominy to Skiffes Creek 500kV transmission line route that is continuing to be evaluated.
