SURRY, Va. (AP) - Dominion Virginia Power is considering two routes for a proposed 500-kilovolt power line that would run from its Surry nuclear power station to a substation.

One route would cross the James River and run 7.7 miles to a substation in James City. The other would run 38 miles through James City and Charles City counties to a substation in Chickahominy.

Dominion spokeswoman Bonita Harris tells The Daily Press that the Chickahominy route would cost $150 million to $200 million, while the Surry route could be $50 million less.

The company plans to hold a public meeting March 26 at James River Elementary School in Williamsburg to discuss the proposed power line.
