During lunch, I have been biking over to inspect the construction on Brookwood Parkway and NW Huffman Street.1This is also where the new transmission line was installed late last year. There is a new industrial park going in north of Huffman and Brookwood is being widened to include more lanes, bike lanes, and sidewalks. Just this week, all the trees along the sides and in the median were removed.
This pole at the east end of Huffman attracted my attention. More specifically, the weights on the right side that direct the connections between the lines. I don’t think I’ve seen weights used like this before, so I will start looking for other poles using them.2I don’t believe any of the many pictures of power poles here have such weights.
