For Your Information: Dominion Energy has hung warning flags from the overhead power and phone lines crisscrossing Charles Town Pike in Hillsboro. This is done to aid the visibility of the overhead lines for the operators of large dump trucks, backhoes and other construction equipment that will soon be working in and moving through Town.

Because the removal of aerial utilities and utility poles is dependent upon the complete installation of utility duct banks and the installation of miles of cables, the poles and overhead lines will remain in place during most of the construction activity.

This precautionary effort helps to avoid dangerous hazards for the workers and damage to the overhead system during construction.
