Project Description: The action involves a rebuild of two segments of the existing 115 kV transmission line, known as the Ticonderoga-Republic #2 and Ticonderoga-Republic #3, extending from the Republic Steel Substation in the Town of Moriah to the Ticonderoga Substation in the Town of Ticonderoga and from the Ticonderoga Substation to the Whitehall Substation in the Town of Whitehall.

A total of 202 existing wooden utility pole structures ranging in height from 39 to 66 feet above grade will be refurbished or replaced with steel utility pole structures ranging in height from 43 to 74 feet above grade. The project includes the installation of one new utility pole structure and two new independent poles adjacent to existing structures for osprey nesting purposes. All areas of potential construction activity are located within the existing transmission line right-of-way and existing access routes to each pole structure will be utilized during construction.
