How will northern ground conditions be addressed to ensure that poles are structurally reliable?

Engineers will determine the best solution to ensure each pole has a suitable foundation. Rock anchors can be used in rocky terrain, poles can be buried below the frost line in areas where the soil is deep enough, and specialized foundations can be used in muskeg and wet areas. Aggregate or concrete can be used to backfill postholes if needed, and wires can be used anywhere where the poles require extra support. Building transmission lines in the boreal forest environment has been done in many locations and we will seek experienced constructors to supervise the work.
