AK1 - Double Circuit 138 kV

Skokie, Illinois, USA

December 2016, Double Circuit - 138 kV

This raise project had many interesting challenges. The structure is located along one of the busiest commuter train ROW’s in the Nation. Any overhead work on the ROW would require a shutdown to commuter services. To assist the public, the rail company and the client, Ampjack agreed to working at night under the glow of generator lights for the projects duration. Further complexities were added when the project was scheduled through the holiday season. The 14 ft raise took approximately 4 nights and was completed safely and efficiently.
