5/9/2017

 USA, Delaware: Delmarva Power and Light Co. officials can move forward with a $7 million project to expand the Midway substation along Route 1 near the Dartmouth Drive intersection in Lewes, a town in the Cape Region in Sussex County.

The project will include installation of a second transformer, additional transmission and distribution breakers and three separate transmission lines –from Cool Spring to Five Points; from Five Points to Midway; and from Midway to Rehoboth Beach.

Work is expected to be completed in a year.

Officials say the project is needed to keep pace with growth and improve reliability to the system that serves the Cape Region.
