Thornton Utilities LLC served as a subcontractor on this project to replace an estimated 5.5 mile portion of overhead electrical line, Feeder K1, needed to support Vandenberg AFB’s space launch mission and ensure adequate security. This required the demolishment of the existing aerial powerline, installation of the new powerline and modification to existing facilities served by the powerline.
