cross arm???

Very hard to know without more context.

"Crosse" could well be the "outreach arm, bracket arm, carrying arm" of a power pole, (one of) the arm(s) carrying the wires. The term is certainly used for lighting columns with arms at the top.

No idea for "avancée" here, though.

In the lighting context "avancée" appears to suggest "bringing the light closer to (the road, etc.)", so "outreach arm". But the expression is rare, and used by only one website!
