Bryan Texas Utilities Begins Pole Reinforcement Project

Bryan, Texas — Bryan Texas Utilities (BTU) has contracted with Osmose Utilities Services, Inc., to perform steel reinforcement of specified electric distribution poles, as identified from the previous pole inspection project. This project will begin on May 16, 2018, and will be completed by August 24, 2018.

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.

Area residents may notice Osmose trucks and personnel in the area throughout the project period.
