Double Poles

Here you can learn more about what double poles are, state regulations surrounding double poles, and find out how to access utility double pole reports.

Over time, utility poles in your community may require replacement because of:

  • System upgrades that the existing pole cannot accommodate;
  • Construction projects or municipal road work that requires a new pole; or
  • Safety issues, including if the pole is in danger of failing.

The term “double pole” refers to the situation when a replacement utility pole is built alongside the pole to be replaced for the purpose of transferring the electric, telephone, cable, or other wires from one pole to the other.
