I&M plans helicopter inspections of area power lines

(Tommie Lee)

Indiana Michigan Power will start the month of August by conducting aerial inspections, on both sides of the state line.

Helicopter flights to inspect the high-voltage lines in our area begin Monday.

The red and white helicopter will be flying about 50 to 100 feet above the power lines, moving at about 40 miles per hour.

It will be seen over South Bend, North Central Indiana, and Southwest Michigan between August 3 and the 15.

In the second half of the month, they will cover the Fort Wayne and Muncie areas. Weather could delay the schedule. Anyone with questions or concerns should call I&M.
