Another picture showing the new 115kV line nearing completion. The day after this was taken, all the phase conductors were clipped into place. It also looks like the fiberoptic shield wire has been pulled in as far as pole #11 - they just need to pull it along one more span so they can run it down to the splice box that will be on pole #12.

Right now, the span from #11 to #12 is one of the last things to be done before they can heat up this line and with it, the Falls substation. The left-hand circuit will later follow the same path as the Old Iron circuit just beneath it.

The third 69kV line (far left) was back in operation too.
