By Josh Newton

— Derek Hays, left, and Carl Wisely, linemen with the Grand River Dam Authority finish securing braces on a pole they had just replaced Tuesday south of Muskogee on U.S. 69. The GRDA crews were installing new poles for 69,000-volt transmission lines. The work is considered routine maintenance, said lead lineman Brent Scott.
