34.5kV Line Hardening

Utility Design Services was retained by a large utility company in Illinois to provide field engineering to rebuild, re-span and line harden approximately 10 miles of existing 34.5kV line.  Wood poles were replaced with composite poles due to the fact this project was located on various terrains including timber and strip mines.

Project Scope:


  • Field engineering
  • Construction staking
  • Composite Poles
  • Project management
  • Construction coordination between Ameren, IDOT, local cooperatives, governments and municipalities
