Project Details

  • Removed 16 existing structures and double circuit conductors
  • Installed 19 new custom steel poles on concrete caisson foundations
  • Installed 2 circuits of 138kV conductor
  • Installed 2 circuits of 69kV conductor

Lean, Innovative, and Unique Project Solutions

Only one circuit was taken out of service at a time to allow for construction, as a result Cianbro built the new lines within 20 feet of an energized circuit. Cianbro also coordinated construction activities within an operating ALCOA facility.
