Hi Bryce,

If find your example really good, thank you to have find such a nice place

I don't agree to use highway=* + utility_wires because of the lack of
information it introduces.
The member nodes of the highway=* way won't reflect the real position of
(and some other details about) the poles supporting utilities networks
beside the road.

Since only the render is affected by such a level of details, only the
render should be updated.
Those power lines can be selected by their voltage=low tag.
As it has already been discussed here and on several wiki Talk pages,
voltage - not the one but part of - some serious scale factors to get the
importance of power lines.

Currently, power lines are concerned by a few proposals :

All the best
