Stone Mountain Georgia

The Stone Mountain project consisted of changing out 6 poles and equipment on the line that feeds the tram and visitors center on top of Stone Mountain. Due to the extreme inclines on the mountain rubber tracked equipment had to be used. The slope neared 45 degrees in some spots so winches were used to keep the equipment from turning over backwards and falling down the mountain. Poles were installed sitting directly on top of the granite and secured with bolts at the bottom and guyed all 4 ways. You can see downtown Atlanta 20 miles in the background looking West. There was also one pole that could not be accessed at all and had to be climbed to change the cold shrinks on the URD terminations.
