VELCO Team On-Schedule to Complete Conductor Installation in August

It has been a rugged and important job for Cianbro: Setting 900 poles, framing 414 structures, and pulling wire over 54 miles of mountainous terrain in Vermont for the Vermont Electric Power Company Southern Loop Project.  Once the job is complete, VELCO customers in Vermont will have a more reliable transmission system for obtaining the electricity they need.

All of the 900 poles are set and framing will be complete by the end of this week. Wire is pulled in over 88% of the 54 miles, and the team is currently on-track to be finished on time, by August 24th.

The team has been doing some of its most impressive work of the project in recent days, working with ever longer lengths of conductor. Team members just completed their longest pull to date which covers approximately 18,104 feet of "right of way" and equates to over 108,000 feet of conductor. The average pull length on the project is roughly 11,000 "right of way" feet (or 66,000 feet of conductor). To date, the team has pulled more than 1,900,000 feet of overhead wire including OPGW (fiber optic).
