Keep your eyes on the road if you’re driving through the Canso Causeway over the coming weeks, but also keep an eye to the sky. Nova Scotia Power and contractor, ‘Tower Power’, started applying protective coating to 6 transmission towers on Tuesday afternoon.
Nova Scotia Power Project Manager, Grant Fraser says this type of work has been done before in Halifax. He advises motorists to pay close attention when driving through these work zones:
Fraser says some delays can be expected while work is completed, but disruption should be minimal. The coating will help prevent corrosion and extend the life of the structures by 20 years.
