Katapult Engineering makes relocating PPL poles for PennDOT or PA Turnpike projects easy with our online applications management portal. This handy internet resource simplifies document and data collection, letting you work on multiple applications from a single platform. From submitting PennDOT PPL pole relocation applications to creating TSL maps, project managers and data engineers now have a number of useful tools at their disposal. Browse our website to learn more about our services or follow the links on this page to start your application today.
APPLYING FOR A POLE RELOCATION
The Utilities Unit of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is responsible for coordinating the relocation of utility poles, lines and cables. In order to request the relocation of a utility pole, a thorough application must be submitted to the unit. Fortunately, Katapult Engineering’s online portal makes the process simple and straightforward, reducing paperwork delays, speeding up project cycle times and improving your chance of a successful petition.
Here’s how the process works:
Create an account: The first step in submitting a PPL pole relocation request is to create an account. Accounts can be created by any PPL employee or contractor approved by either PennDOT or the Turnpike.
Create a new application: On the home screen, you’ll find all of your in-progress and previously submitted applications easily accessible. When you log in for the first time, click the “Create New Application” button to begin.
Upload your documents: A complete application must consist of all project information as well as a map including current and legal ROW lines, project drawings showing cross sections and cut/fill lines with final grades, and a letter of authorization.
Populate the facilities list: You’ll then be directed to a map in which you can populate the facilities conflict list by manually typing in pole numbers or by clicking on individual poles in the map.
CREATING A TSL MAP
Our online portal can also be used to generate a TSL map. Simply log in as you normally would and follow the links to the TSL Maps app. Then, search for your location using an address, grid number or GPS coordinates. From there, simply click to draw lines and press the PDF button to generate your map. You’ll then receive two files: the map itself as well as a document listing all attachers currently on record at PPL.
