Commonwealth Crossing Transmission Line Project

Appalachian Power and Henry County are partnering to increase economic development potential by building about five miles of new transmission line.

The proposed Commonwealth Crossing Transmission Line Project is a $7 million investment that would provide the Henry County Commonwealth Crossing Business Centre (CCBC) with a robust, reliable power source capable of handling future power needs for incoming businesses.

The CCBC is located just south of Martinsville near the Virginia-North Carolina border. Construction of the line is expected to take less than 18 months.

Project Update

Right-of-way acquisition will begin later this year. Construction will begin once the county has secured a customer for the Commonwealth Crossing Business Centre.
