    July 26, 2017

    Please be advised that several spans of a power transmission line that are above portions of Stoney Trail along the western shore of Barrier Lake have been identified to not meet Altalink’s requirements.

    • Until further notice and until the clearances can be raised in the fall of 2017 by the installation of several taller pole structures, signs specifically identifying the areas with reduced clearance will be deployed as well as advisory notices at trailheads.
    • To ensure public safety, Altalink is requesting that users of the area do not cross under the power lines where the signs are deployed.
    • If the public must cross or walk along the transmission line right-of-way in these areas, please avoid crossing under or walking in areas immediately below the middle of a span where the signs are deployed.  Where possible, plan to cross such low span areas close to a pole structure.
    • If there are any questions, please contact Altalink at or 1.877.269.5903
