Dominion Energy puts up giant posters to beautify Glebe Electric Transmission Project in Potomac Yard

Dominion Energy’s Glebe Electric Transmission Project in Potomac Yard just got a little more attractive.

Since last winter, the parking lot in the 3800 block of Richmond Highway in Potomac Yard has been home to a tall, ugly concrete structure to hide the work Dominion has been doing to create underground electric transmission lines and rebuild and modernize the Glebe Substation in nearby Arlington County.

The sound walls will be up until at least the end of the year, and to make their appearance easier on the eyes Dominion just unveiled two giant posters showing Potomac Yard in the future by local artist Lea Craigie.

Craigie, who was the official 2022 National Cherry Blossom artist, digitally created two 23-foot-by-30-foot posters for the project. A poster depicting an evening scene faces Richmond Highway, while the other poster faces the parking lot.

“These walls weren’t the most pleasant things to look at,” Craigie said. “I want people to feel happy and peaceful when they look at my art. I also want them to think about the environment. In my pieces you’ll see electric chargers on the cars, solar panels, trains, wind turbines, and a diverse mix of people.”

The project timeline is below.
