Document Description
Trinity Public Utilities District (TPUD) is proposing to install a new pole and appurtenant infrastructure in the State Route (SR) 3 right-of-way near the community of Hayfork. The pole would be located northwest of the intersection of SR 3 (PM 6.5) and Tule Creek Road, approximately 42 feet west of the pavement. The pole would be installed at a depth of seven feet; the excavation would be 20 inches wide. To support the new pole, a guy line would extend 20 feet west of the pole. Improvements also include a segment of aerial 12kV conductor that would be installed across SR 3, along Riverview and Tule Creek Roads, at a minimum height of 38 feet. The project is anticipated to be completed in 2 working days. No tree removal is proposed in the right-of-way.
