Five Points — Delmarva Power is installing four new poles to support new power lines near Five Points.

“We are rebuilding the transmission and distribution systems between Five Points substation and Wescoats Corner. Technically, this will complete a multiyear rebuild between Harbeson and Lewes near Cape Henlopen High School,” Matt Likovich, Delmarva Power spokesman said.

Likovich said new poles would be installed through the end of the month, and crews would return in the fall to complete the work.

“This segment is critical though, since it crosses all lanes of Route 1 at Five Points. We have cleared all of this with DelDOT,” Likovich said May 9.
