Weather experts estimate that 80 mph straight-line winds produced significant damage to the area, breaking four 138 kV wood H-frame structures and creating outages on three 138 kV lines. Two of the damaged H-frame structures supported a 138 kV line which spanned U.S. Highway 41 just west of Ishpeming. The crews’ primary focus was to raise the 138 kV conductor off the highway so traffic could resume. The MJE team worked through inclement weather conditions and succeeded in energizing the initial 138 kV line by the end of the first shift. The remaining lines were restored within 48 hours.
