POWER LINE USAGE

(1/1)

Russ:
This is the link for Central Maine Power- Land use and Access (Recreational Uses)

As part of its licensing process, CMP requires that:

Written notice of all proposed trails be given to abutting landowners prior to the State making application to CMP.
Only snowmobiles and 3 and 4 wheeled ATV's are permitted on CMP corridors. No other vehicles such as 4 x 4 trucks or two wheeled high-pressure dirt bikes are permitted.
Where CMP has easement rights only, approval of the trails will be limited to the extent of CMP's easement rights. Additional approval for the trail must be obtained from the fee landowner.

Best bet is to play it safe and stay away... Think of the future.

I will be contacting Bangor Hydro and Emera Inc. on the info for use on their lines and will post up any links or information I can find.

TJKDave:

Motor Man (Bill):

Please review CMP's website about the legality of riding along power lines. This is a direct quote from their website:

Only snowmobiles and 3 and 4 wheeled ATV's are permitted on CMP corridors. No other vehicles such as 4 x 4 trucks or two wheeled high-pressure dirt bikes are permitted.
