Finally got a pic of the line work on the north Kiwanis rebuild. Given the manpower here, it seems the emphasis right now seems to be getting that 69kV back on the line. The rebuild will continue towards the light where a corner pole is going to be (but it seems they will put up temporary jumpers to keep the 69kV line on its present course - once the reroute is finished next year, the route will be shortened by 8 blocks).

Good shot there! It'll be sad to see your "home" 69kV line bite the dust. Good thing we've got pictures while we still can.

They certainly want to get that line back up! They worked on structure placement Saturday AND Sunday (they have all the structures up to the corner in place now). I'll bet they have the 69kV reenergized by the weekend before they even think of anything else.

I didn't realize that was the same line at first. I will miss the look of that line.

Both circuits have been rebuilt - still a few minor details left to take care of (pulling old poles, moving two branches, etc.).
