CS & CD Pole (1242278-85’) Replacement Project (No. 2.00293)
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Due to the loading stress on wood pole 1242278-85’ with double existing 92kV “CD” & “CS” transmission lines and double distribution underbuilt 12.25kV circuits N922 & N151 from Avenue 42 Substation to North La Quinta Substation and Shields Substation respectively, a steel pole will permanently replace the existing wood pole. Given the importance of the transmission lines, a temporary shoe fly will be constructed to avoid taking the lines out of operation.
