The Hannibal Board of Public Works is in the process of relocating all of its reserve poles to one location at the Wastewater Treatment Plant.

A procession of private vehicles was lined up behind a convoy of Hannibal Board of Public Works, their hazard lights flashing, on Warren Barrett Drive on Wednesday morning. The BPW trucks were bound for the Wastewater Treatment Plant.

BPW personnel are in the process of consolidating the BPW’s pile of reserve power line poles.

According to a BPW worker at the scene some of the city’s longest poles are being moved initially.

It is estimated that a total of 28 poles will be moved a day. Ultimately some 200 poles will be relocated.

Many of the poles had been at the Oakwood substation where space is being opened for new equipment.
