Coolidge-Oracle Pole Replacement
CX(s) Applied: B4.6
Location(s): Pinal County, Arizona
Office(s): Western Area Power Administration-Desert Southwest Region
Western plans to replace deteriorated wood poles, cross arms and X-braces at 59 existing H-frame or three-pole-turning structures located along the Coolidge-Oracle 115-kilovolt Transmission Line in Pinal County, Arizona. Built in 1943, its aging components are beyond repair and require replacement. These poles performed poorly during structural tests, and we consider them unstable, This project ensures the safety of Western's workers and the public as well as reliability of the bulk electric system.
