RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Public hearings have been set on a proposed transmission line project in Prince William County.

Dominion Virginia Power is seeking state regulatory approval to upgrade a 115 kilovolt line in Prince William and Loudoun counties to 230 kilovolts.

The company also has asked the State Corporation Commission to approve a new 230 kilovolt line in Prince William County and Haymarket. The line would run about 5 miles from an existing substation in Gainesville to a newly constructed substation near Haymarket.

The commission says it will hold public hearings on Feb. 24 and March 14 at the Battlefield High School auditorium in Haymarket. A hearing also is set for May 10 in Richmond.

May 3 is the deadline for written comments to be submitted.
