Here's a close look at the base of the 115kV tower. Note that it has been surrounded by a gravel turnaround. This bank-run gravel has been put in place for trucks to get around for the line's demolition. Also makes for easy access for linegeeks who take pictures! : )

Surprising they don't really have 'minimum maintenance' roads like they do out here.

Me too, but its usually the norm for some. I know in National grids territory a lot of lines run through the middle of deep forests with no way to get them . I always wondered how they put them there in the first pace.

CL&P has trails that run underneath many of their transmission lines, but not all of them cross terrain that would allow for a continuous path. This line would be included in that. It goes over wetlands, rocks, cliffs, highways, and cliffs. They had to build individual roads to each tower for most of the line on order to get equipment in.
