— Del­marva Power Com­pany has started con­struc­tion of a small sub­sta­tion on the cor­ner of Blue Ball and War­bur­ton roads in the Pleas­ant Hill area.

Ni­cholas Morici, spokesman for the util­ity, said grad­ing and soil test­ing is cur­rently un­der­way. He also said neigh­bors of the “unit sub” project would re­ceive a let­ter in the mail soon.

“We are in the process of start­ing no­ti­fi­ca­tion,” he said Tues­day, not­ing that the let­ter will ar­rive just as the sec­ond phase is be­gin­ning. “That’s when they start putting up a struc­ture.”

Morici said this unit sub­sta­tion will help cus­tomers stay con­nected.

“This will bal­ance out the load and im­prove re­li­a­bil­ity in the area,” he said, ad­ding this project is not a large as the Crest Sub­sta­tion un­der con­struc­tion on Route 273 near Ris­ing Sun High School.

“The Crest Sub­sta­tion will sup­ply a greater part of the com­mu­nity,” Morici said, not­ing that project is on track for com­ple­tion in the spring of 2017.
