A newly installed high power (500 KV, if I recall correctly) power pole had an interesting feature to it… a corkscrew metal wrapping. Seemed rather odd, but I’m certain that some engineer had a good reason for it, other than to perplex drivers. Located along a very dull, and long, and straight highway 93 north of North Las Vegas, NV.
