Improvement Work Continues in Frederica

FREDERICA, Del. - In order to improve service reliability in Frederica, Del., Delmarva Power is investing nearly $200,000 this year to upgrade and modernize its electric distribution system in the town.

The work involves the replacement of about 25 poles, as well as the installation of new wire, cross-arms and other assorted upgrades. Improvements will be made along David, Jackson, Market and St. Agnes streets. The work is not expected to cause any significant traffic delays on these streets.

Work is expected to be completed sometime in May, at which time Delmarva Power crews will convert customers to the new power lines, necessitating planned service interruptions of several hours. Prior to the conversion, customers who will be affected by an outage will be notified. Any business-related outages will take place during non-business hours.

 "Over the last five years, Delmarva Power has invested approximately $1 billion to strengthen the electric system throughout our service territory," said John Allen, Delmarva region vice president. "This project is one of numerous infrastructure improvements planned throughout Delaware and Maryland over the next several years designed to improve service to our customers."
