For Immediate Release
Md. - In order to
improve electric service reliability in Salisbury, Md., Delmarva Power has
begun to install new poles, cross arms and wiring along portions of Fitzwater
and Lake streets in Salisbury, Md.
Motorists could experience traffic delays
between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday through April 10. In
addition, traffic will be stopped four times for less than five minutes each
time between midnight and 4 a.m. on April 10 near the intersection of Route 50
and Lake Street in order to allow crews to safely install wire on poles in that
area. In the event of inclement weather, the wire installation in the Route 50
and Lake Street area will occur at the same time on April 11.
The project is part of the company's projected
investment of approximately $11 million in distribution reliability
improvements in Salisbury this year.
"This project is one in a series of
system upgrades we are making to maintain and improve reliability for our
customers," said John Allen, Delmarva Power region vice president.
