Q. When is Duke Power going to replace the high-rise power poles on College Road? All of those power poles look like they are rusting away. I wonder how safe they are with the amount of rust that is on all of them.

A. “The poles on College Road are structurally sound, and we have no immediate plans to replace them,” Duke Energy spokeswoman Meghan Musgrove Miles said in an email.

She said the poles support high-voltage power lines that serve the local community.

“While the poles may not be aesthetically pleasing, they are functioning as they were designed,” Miles said.
