BGE Utility Helicopter to Work in Area

Councilman David Marks reported BGE will be using an utility helicopter contractor to perform work and inspect the electric transmission structures along the right of way.

The hours of operation will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. starting Sept. 22 to 28.

According to the map, the areas included are the Route 43 corridor in Middle River up towards the Perry Hall/Carney region.

Area residents and motorists may see the helicopter hovering near the flight path.

BGE is working to minimize disruption from the helicopter; however, motorists and passersby are advised to use caution in the vicinity of the work and maintain focus on traffic.

The inspection is part of BGE’s focus on continued electric service reliability for customers. The helicopter will be used to photograph BGE electric assets.

The helicopter provides an aerial perspective on equipment and allows BGE to inspect the system more efficiently than using ground inspections alone.
