The portions of the PATH Project in West Virginia will consist of approximately 224 miles of 765 kV electric transmission line in Putnam, Kanawha, Roane, Calhoun, Braxton, Lewis, Upshur, Barbour, Tucker, Preston, Grant, Hardy, Hampshire, and Jefferson Counties ("West Virginia Segments"), modifications to the Amos Substation in Pumam County, and a proposed new substation in Hardy County CWelton Spring Substation"). The West Virginia Segments will begin at the Amos Substation in Putnam County, exit West Virginia to Frederick County, Virginia from Hampshire County, re-enter West Virginia in Jefferson County, and then exit West Virginia a second time into Loudoun CoUnty, Virginia.

At a point 1.75 miles east of SR 90, the route tams to the southeast for 1. ! miles before entering back into the northern tip of Tucker County. In Tucker County, the Proposed Route travels parallel to the TRAIL line 1.8 miles towards the southeast before crossing SR 93 and the future Corridor H route 0.6 miles northeast of the intersection of this road and A Frame Road and 0.8 miles north of the Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge. At a point 0.2 miles southeast of SR 93, the rou~e angles to the northeast parallel for 1.4 miles before angling to the east and crossing the future Corridor H mute again, 1.1 miles west of the intersection of this road and the county boundary. The route continues parallel to the east and crosses SR 93 again, 0.6 miles northwest parts of Putnam, Kanawha, Roane, Calhoun, Braxton, Lewis, Upshur, Barbour, Tucker, Preston, Grant, Hardy, Hampshire, and Jefferson Counties, and is of the intersection of this road and A! Brown Road, and crosses Al Brown Road~0.3 miles northwest of the same intersection. The route continues parallel for depicted by the solid black line shown on the above maps.

" Cost and Estimated Rate Impact The current cost estimate for the PATH Project is $1 849 billion. Of this estimated amount, the current cost estimate of the West Virginia Segments is $'998 minion, the current cost estimate for the modifications to the Amos Substation and the proposed ~{edton Spring Substation is $364 million.

"~" The rates of PATH-WV, PATH-~Allegheny, and PATH-VA are subject to the jurisdiction of the Federal Energy Regulatory CommissiOn CFERC"). The recovery of all costs associated with the financing, construction, ownership, and operation of the PATH project will be determined by FERC and charged to the transmission customers of PJM Interconnection, L.L.C.

Because PJM's transmission customers include, directly or indirectly, all electric utilities operating in West Virginia, the electric rates for all West Virginia electric customers are likely to be a~eeted by the PATH Project. The timing and amount of these impacts will vary,depending ~.the percenm.ge, of the revenue requirements associated with the~tmstmction and 6peration of the facilities that is allocatedlo each West Virginia elecmc ntfltty and the timing and manner of recovery of PJM transmission charges by each utility from its customers in West Virginia.
