    Comment sought on proposed power line in Loudoun County

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Regulators are seeking public comment on a Dominion Virginia Power plan to build a new high-voltage transmission line and substation in Loudoun County.

    The proposed Pacific 230 kV and substation is located in the Broad Run Board of Supervisors district, several miles north of the Dulles Greenway.

    The State Corporation Commission says local public hearings are scheduled for March 18 in Sterling. Discussions will continue in Richmond on June 9 and written comments must be submitted by June 2.

    Richmond-based Dominion want to construct the power line on a new right-of-way by cutting into an existing transmission line. The new line would then extend nearly 2 miles to a new substation.

    Regulators say because no existing right-of-way is available, Dominion has submitted a proposed route as well as three alternative routes for consideration.
