This is my understanding, @Shawn_Christian seems very correct:
Red dots being the current existing towers (close enough)
Oh heck, it’s going to take them a while to get to our location …
I’ve never seen an auger bit as large as the one they use for the foundation lol
Like this but the width of a full size trailer
Yeah, those bases are pretty darn substantial. But the ones that transition to a substation are considerably larger yet.
Yeah the substations transformers are heavy as hell. I have heard 250,000 lbs plus.
The startup I’m working on,in the (vfd)drive, the transformer is 9,000 lbs.
They’re doing preliminary work at the end of Monetary, near the dead end.
They recently finished the base for the new tower just west of the tire shop on Valley View and Denton Drive if anyone is curious. It is right next to the existing lattice tower right next to the road.
They are starting to do something at the base of the tower in front. The name on the truck is “Badger Daylighting” so I would guess they are digging out the soil around the base of the tower.
What’s the progress so far? Are they out in front?
They apparently dug out or injected something into the dirt next to the tower in front. Nothing else visible and no further work activity.
