Cass County Electric Coop - Cass County, ND

Cass County Electric Coop - Cass County, ND
A former NSP 69kV transposition pole reworked into a distribution switch pole.

The line was likely a tie from the Fargo Division to reach the Grand Forks Division system but later became redundant with the construction of higher voltage transmission lines between the two towns. Not sure how the coop wound up with the line - perhaps NSP was going to wreck it out and the coop offered to buy it instead?

I wonder how the rest of this line looks.

Here's another pole: www.ipernity.com/doc/ndlinegeek/18783113

This line picks up between exits 67 and 69 (I-29) along the old US 81 roadway just east, continues north to just south of Gardner (Exit 86), then becomes an active 69kV line that continues along old US 81 north into Grand Forks - the NSP Cummings, Reynolds/Buxton, and Thompson subs are all along that line. Here's a random street view: goo.gl/maps/oXrpw4dqQ2Q2
