The picture and caption to the right explain some of the steps that the crews are going through to change out these miles and miles of line.


Three phase line being upgraded. What you see is a temporary arm, attached to the new pole and cross arm, with the hot wires on the temporary arm. To get to this state, a man in a bucket truck had to untie the hot wires, put insulators or guts over the wires and pull them up and out of the way, until a digger truck could remove the old pole and replace it with this new one. The man in the bucket, then attaches the hot wires to the temporary arm’s insulators. New wire will be pulled onto the new crossarm’s insulators and tied down when tight. Then the old wire and tempo- rary arms will be removed after the new line is made hot. There is 17 to 20 poles per mile of line. We are doing this on each pole in 1249 miles of upgrades.
