Some of you in the Detroit area may recognize the graffiti art work and this mess. Not sure of the voltage or the use of the wiring. Maybe someone can recognize it.

Thank You,

Looks like CATV or phone drops, but cant be sure. Looks like the pole is in mid repair, maybe postponed due to extreme cold?

Anyway look a that blowing snow.... Brrrrr!

Definitely looks like the pole is being replaced. I've seen that done where the new pole is placed alongside a rotten one and over a period of time, the wires are transferred over.

THey should have barricaded that stuff at least. Oh well

Silly question, I guess, but do you know what's at the top of the pole...transformers, CATV, telephone, etc.?

Certainly looks like a new pole sistered onto a damaged one (most likely from an auto accident). Also looks like a fire hydrant just barely visible on the far side.

Looking at the second pic a little more closely, it appears that several of the conductors have been spliced (and poorly at that).
