Spotted this on the way from Decatur to Springfied (IL) on US 36 / I 74. As I approached from a distance, I thought that the iron workers had substituted a section of bridge span for regular crossarms on the high-tension span! . I managed to snap this pic on the way back later in the morning.

Interesting the tubular main pole in this type of structure.

What would the design voltage be 375 kV ??
