Reconductoring a transmission line
My bicycle commute takes me along the Stevens creek trail in Mountain View. Quite a number of high voltage transmission lines run along here. On the north end, most of them, maybe all of them, veer out across the bay toward the Ravenswood substation near the Dumbarton bridge.
Imagine my 11-year old boy excitement when I came along here one day and saw two of the transmission lines with conductors grounded, dead-ended and ready to drop onto rollers. Oboyoboyoboyoboy! What a chance for a photo adventure!
There are four slide shows; large files, so give them time to download.
