This past week, American Transmission Company needed to install a temporary mid-span pole between structures 29 & 30 (shown below).
This project’s objective was to resolve clearance issues found on the line, located above the big bluestem berm between #14 cart path and #15 tee.
The temporary mid-span posts will be removed when the line is rebuilt; currently proposed for 2023. The temporary work performed was only within the existing easement area and will not require any ground repair work.
On the left, is the ATC’s backhoe drilling a 9’ 6” deep hole for the posts. On the right is ATC raising the lines to their proper clearance.
