Photo Simulation

View from Telegraph Road looking southwest. The majority of this project is reconductoring the existing double-circuit 230 kV transmission line. Reconductoring is replacing old transmission wire with new transmission wire. This effort will result in minimal visual change. This project is subject to PSC approval and design changes.
