ITC Michigan, through its Michigan Electric Transmission Company (METC) subsidiary, is improving the reliability of high-voltage electrical service in the area south of Lansing by replacing wood poles with more durable steel monopole structures. The new construction with higher-strength steel poles allowed for longer spans between poles, reducing the total number of poles. New shield wires were added at the top for additional lightning protection. This project was completed in 2015.
