Progress!

The muni circuit (#3) now has a gang switch - it's definitely going underground at that pole, but I don't know where the line will resurface (it will be along Kiwanis north of Madison for sure). I'm thinking the transformer pole will be stripped down to single phase as it powers the street lights in the area.

The Xcel line is pulled in and and is already energized (to serve a 7970V line a block south), and I'm betting they will cut over the transformer banks from the old to the new in the morning.

The wires in the foreground is for the one circuit that will remain after this alignment is cleaned up.
