Houston Ship Channel Renewal
Not far from the Fred Hartman Bridge spanning the busy Houston Ship Channel lies Alexander Island, basically a dredging depository. It also serves as the crossing point for a major transmission line. The towers were sinking, however, and CenterPoint asks Mesa not only to move the lines’ path and build new towers (all the while avoiding the multiple pipelines buried below), but to re-cable to support the change from 69kv to 138kv transmission. And haul off the old towers. And hold the line from the mainland in place over the Ship Channel the entire time.
