Implosive splicing in western Loudoun may cause loud noises

Implosive splicing is set to occur at some point in the next week in western Loudoun.

A construction method used to join overhead power lines together, splicing creates a loud noise that may at first seem alarming.

The splicing was originally scheduled to take place between Dec. 6 and Dec. 10 at 38800 Long Lane in Lovettsville and Saw Mill Lane in Nearsville. However, inclement weather may push back the schedule.

Once the splicing is finished, crews will leave and return a week later to complete the second phase.

The splicing is part of the Mt. Storm to Doubs Transmission project, a project to rebuild structures on a 500 kilovolt transmission line that serves West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland.
