Pacificorp 69kV - Butte County, ID

Pacificorp 69kV - Butte County, ID
This pole is the very last intact survivor from the original line that occupied this ROW, which was erected in the early 1910s. The pole and crossarms are original, but the insulators and wire are later replacements (this line has been rebuilt and reconductored many times since the original one was put up).

Note the wooden ridge-pin mounted in the center of the pole top, and the wood blocks between the crossarms.

There is a section of the original 69kV line from the 1910s that has survived to this day, but it currently runs as 7.2/12.47kV distribution. It will be featured in later photos.
