BGE will be using a utility helicopter contractor this month to perform work on electric transmission equipment, including stringing and fastening new overhead wires in Harford County. Area residents and motorists may see the helicopter hovering near transmission power lines or following a flight path along electric transmission corridors.
A utility worker from the helicopter will also perform work on the equipment. The helicopter may be seen moving tow ropes for cables and hovering over individual transmission towers before moving to the next piece of equipment. Motorists and passersby are advised to use caution in the vicinity of the work and to maintain focus on traffic.
The section of electric transmission line where the maintenance will be performed is roughly from Cherry Hill Road down to MD Route 23. Weather permitting, this work is scheduled from Dec.1 – Dec. 22 during the day.
