aerial insert

In a direct-buried or underground cable run, a cable rise to a point above ground, followed by an overhead run, e.g., on poles, followed by a drop back into the ground. Note: An aerial insert is used in places where it is not possible or practical to remain underground, such as might be encountered in crossing a deep ditch, canal, river, or subway line.
