Document Description
The Cottonwood to Roseville Optical Ground Wire Project consists of the installation of Optical Ground Wire (OPGR) from the Cottonwood station to the Roseville station, a distance of approximately 140 miles. This project also includes removal of approximately 43 single steel poles in the northern eight miles, replacement of these poles with 29 new, double-circuit, 230-kilovolt transmission line steel poles, re-conductoring the northern eight miles of the project area, and construction of an in-line amplifier structure under and existing lattice tower. The OPGW installation would include multiple river crossings; however, the OPGW would be installed on existing towers using a helicopter and all waters of the U.S. would be clear spanned.
