Powerline Contruction in Manassas National Battlefield Park

Dominion Virginia Power will reconfigure the two powerlines that run through the western edge of the park, crossing Route 29 at Pageland Lane.

Because the project affects Federal land, the National Park Service is conducting an Environmental Assessment (EA) – a streamlined version of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).   No new land would be cleared or acquired, but under Alternative C the park could require additional vegetative screening at the Brawner house as part of the terms and conditions for the construction permit.

The period for public comment has been extended to May 11.  Check out the Environmental Assessment and send your comments.
