BGE using helicopters for utility work in Crownsville

Helicopters were scheduled to be in Crownsville this weekend — and will return in a couple of weeks — to replace electric wires.

BGE is replacing utility poles and overhead lines in Crownsville, but a lack of ground access and road crossings has led the utility to use helicopters to put the new poles and lines in place.

Residents may see helicopters hovering over the area during the work, which was scheduled for May 16 through 18 and May 30 to June 1.

There also may be some temporary lane closures on roads in the area.
