Construction on new Dominion Power Substation causing nearby homes to shake

We were alerted by several readers to loud construction from the new Dominion Power substation on Monroe Avenue in Del Ray causing their homes to shake.

Here’s an example of some of the texts/tweets we’ve received:


According to Dominion, the new substation will provide additional capacity for future growth in the area and potentially create shorter power outage times during storms and other weather incidents. Dominion apologizes to residents and says the loud work causing the shaking should last only till the end of this week.
