Investigation of Cable Issues For Successful Replacement

This project involved a cable that was reported to have become unattached to a pole at a corner and needed to be reattached. In the field, the cable was found to be attached to the pole using rope. After taking field notes and analyzing the pole loading and slack in the cable, it was determined that the cable could not be reattached and a new section of cable had to be installed. Working with the client, Farnsworth Group determined the optimal starting and ending locations of the replacement cable to best utilize the clients construction forces. Professional engineering workprints were created and submitted to the client. Structural analysis reports for each pole within the project scope were also submitted to the client.
