Removal of Overhead Power Lines

BC Hydro crews are on-site this week to run power lines through the new ducting that was recently installed underneath the bridge. When finished, they will permanently remove the overhead power lines that span the waterway. Putting these power lines under the bridge  not only improves the esthetics of the project, but also removes the risk of injury and/or death to the many birds of the Gorge area from hitting the overhead power lines when taking off from the water.
