Canton, Ohio has a new, one of a kind iconic goal post landmark just outside of the NFL Hall of Fame. The two yellow, 80ft. tall goal posts are hard to miss and now remind drivers that Canton is home to the National Football League's Pro Football Hall of Fame. These goal posts aren't just decorative, they have a purpose. They serve as transmission structures that supply power to the people who visit and live in the city. On one side of Interstate 77 lies Canton's Stadium Park and Mercy Medical Center and on the other side, the Hall of Fame.

During the planning phase of the new transmission towers, the design team began discussing ideas that would pay tribute to the location and give prominence to the area. It was at that point when it was suggested to make the structures look like NFL goal posts. The project only took 19 weeks from conception to completion.
A duplex coating was selected where the structures were galvanized not only for protection against the elements of Mother Nature but, but also to protect from the moisture coming off of Lake Erie. The structures are powder coated, on top of the galvanizing, in a fluorescent yellow paint to resemble goal posts on a football field, yielding additional protection from the environment.
