Power line removal from the Lagoon

City of Seward linemen removed the Lagoon power lines and poles on Tuesday and Wednesday, the final stage of the successful underground power line project.

It was quite an interesting project to watch. After the power lines and cable were removed, the poles were chained to a boom lift which carefully lowered the pole to the ground. The job went smoothly and was accomplished with minimal interruption of either foot or vehicle traffic.

Three of the poles remain to serve eagles, ravens, kingfishers and other birds accustomed to perching on top of the poles, and the delighted humans who enjoy watching them and taking photos.

Thanks to the City of Seward, the Seward Electric Department, and the linemen for their expertise and hard work!
