3-Phase Project Underway to Replace Transmission Poles at South Padre Island
SOUTH PADRE ISLAND – Outages continuing on South Padre Island nearly 24 hours after storms knocked out power.
More than 30 transmission poles were toppled in the storm. Utility crews spent Monday rerouting power to some homes and businesses.
Before the storm hit, there was already a three-phase project set to replace the transmission poles, switching out the wooden poles with metal ones.
It’s just going to take a few years to get it done.
