UPDATE: Another pole problem, in Fauntleroy

5:34 PM: Thanks for the tip! Another pole problem on this blustery afternoon – this one is down across the north end of 44th SW where it intersects with Brace Point Drive and SW Wildwood on the east side of the Fauntleroy business district. Not a major blocking problem – just part of 44th at the bottom of the hill. Police had just arrived when we got there.

12:30 AM: Not fixed as of late Monday night – John Skerratt sent this photo of a worker at the scene:

    Does not look like our City Infrastructure can install very secure Poles around here.  Same thing over on the 4th Ave. Bridge a pole fell knocking out power to Most of Georgetown on Monday 4/4/22.  Nobody checking on anything anymore until disaster hits?

      I live in the area and took the second photo. Kind of amazed me that it was still on at 11:00 at night and it also was a huge hazard because the wind blew over the plastic barricades SPD put up if that street light hadn’t been powered on someone could have easily hit the pole. What’s interesting is they just replaced a few poles in the area over the last couple years including one less than a year ago just up the street from this one. Looking at the base it had rotted below ground and was extremely rotted

Sorry, comment time is over.
