Bryan Texas Utilities Begins Pole Reinforcement Project

on November 25, 2015 in Press Releases

Bryan, Texas – Bryan Texas Utilities (BTU) has contracted with Smith Mountain Investments to perform steel reinforcement of specified electric distribution poles, as identified from the previous pole inspection project.

This pole-restoration program is designed to restore poles weakened by decay or other damage so they exceed National Electrical Safety Code strength requirements. This work is performed at a fraction of the cost of a pole replacement. BTU has been conducting pole inspections to identify poles that may need preventative maintenance or replacement as part of BTU’s overall preventative maintenance program.

This project shall commence on November 30, 2015, and shall be completed by March 31, 2016. Area residents may notice Smith Mountain Investments trucks and personnel in the area throughout the project period.
