The inspections on the 345kV lines are anticipated to take three to four weeks to complete, but all work is strongly weather dependent and inclement weather or any line outage patrols may prolong completion.

​A comprehensive visual inspection (CVI) is a slow, structure-by-structure, span-by-span inspection where the inspector onboard the helicopter gets a thorough look from top to bottom of each structure, associated hardware, and conductors of the transmission line(s). The helicopter will be moving very slowly along each of the transmission lines and will often be seen hovering while carrying out these inspections.
