Project Title: National Grid Piercefield Transmission Line Relocation Project

Location: NYS Route 3 in the Town of Piercefield, New York

For Adirondack Park Agency, Comment Period Ends: May 15, 2008

Project Description: The project is the replacement of existing pole structures 1310 through 1319 in the Piercefield Transmission Line.

Once the new line is operational the old line and poles will be removed from the project site. The new poles will be brown wooden poles (i.e., the same as the old ones). Of the ten poles to be replaced seven will be 5 ± feet higher than the old ones. No vegetative clearing will be required for the pole replacement as all poles will be located within the existing cleared right-of-way. Access will be from existing roads and along the existing right-of-way. Erosion control will be implemented as necessary during the pole replacement project.
