In conjunction with the realignment of Patriots Point Boulevard, the existing power lines will be required to be moved. This provides an opportunity to have the lines placed underground. Placing the lines underground is in accordance with the Comprehensive Plan because it improves reliability of service and also enhances the visual environment in the Waterfront Gateway and the town as a whole.
Existing lines are already underground from Coleman Boulevard to the College of Charleston site. Future development will require lines closer to the Yorktown to be placed underground as well. Project is currently on track.
