Letter to the editor: Utility poles need upgrading

Such a terrible accident. They are lucky to be alive. In Florida, where we recently moved from, Florida Power and Light (FPL) has been in the process of replacing all wooden poles with cement poles on all major highways. Due to high hurricane winds, they can withstand greater pressure from the elements than wooden poles and the centers do not rot. I think GMP should look into these as highway projects are relocating poles during the widening of roads or upgrading.
