My suspicions were quickly confirmed - in the end, Xcel has decided to wreck out the 20.5 miles of retired 69kV line, leaving only the 1.5 miles from here to the Canistota Junction sub (the poles that just got an overhaul to polymer posts). I'm sure Xcel could easily have removed the lower span in the setup but it likely was left in place to serve as a guy wire structure.

Here's an older view of the switch when the 69kV line was still intact: www.ipernity.com/doc/ndlinegeek/18860683
