Electric will remove a 138 kV double circuit lattice tower transmission line
and rebuild it with a single steel pole structure within the existing right of
way. The current transmission line and lattice towers are more than 80 years
old. A 230 kV transmission line will be installed on the south side of the
structure and a 138 kV transmission line will be installed on the north side of
the structure. The 138 kV line will maintain its existing connection at the
Dorothy Substation. The construction of the upgrades will be beneficial to
customers since both age and deteriorating conditions as well as reliability issues
will be addressed with the same transmission solution.
3 miles of the transmission line will traverse Weymouth Township.

where the existing line is located in Weymouth Township.
Atlantic City Electric rebuilt the existing substation with equipment
upgrades within existing fence line. A new storm water management basin was
installed adjacent to the facility within the existing transmission line right
