This was done to reduce space in the right-of way, as well as to save on poles. This construction is quite common in the western USA (less the under-build) because of how strong the poles are, using a minimum of materials and hardware. This rather unique power line is located about 5 miles north of Amarillo, Texas on north highway 287.
