If you were driving out of Prince Rupert on Thursday and spotted a helicopter, it was the BC Hydro Crew fixing a transmission line.
Last week, a tree fell on a transmission line approximately one kilometre out of Prince Rupert, damaging five structures. The helicopter was being used to deliver and help install new poles, said David Mosure, northern community relations for BC Hydro.
“Crews were able to switch around the damaged gear so [there were] no customer impacts after the switching was completed,” Mosure said in an email.
He said the work is expected to be completed by Monday, Jan. 7.
