Helicopter To Help Hang Power Lines Near Beltline

American Transmission Company said it is scheduled to utilize a helicopter for the Rockdale-West Middleton Transmission Line Project on Saturday and Sunday.

Officials said a small helicopter will be used to string wires on new transmission poles during daytime hours. Residents can expect to see the helicopter flying about 100 feet above the ground, officials said.

The flight schedule will vary and is subject to change based on weather. Helicopter use decreases construction time and minimizes environmental impacts to the area.

The area where the helicopter will be used is at the Yahara Wetlands along the Beltline.

Work may be postponed with little or no notice due to conditions. For safety reasons, viewing from road and highway shoulders is prohibited.
