Description: This project consists of the rebuild of approximately 96.4 miles of 500kV transmission line and more than 450 existing transmission structures between the Mount Storm substation in West Virginia and the Potomac River/Maryland border. MYR Group subsidiary The L.E. Myers Co. (L.E. Myers) is building the line in three phases, which was designed to replace aging infrastructure prior to equipment failure. The line is constructed to take advantage of a window of opportunity that will allow the new line to be built during off-peak periods without disrupting power service to customers.
