JCP&L TRANSMISSION LINE WORK
Please be advised that JCP&L will be conducting planned vegetation maintenance and transmission line work throughout Old Bridge Township on Sunday December 13th and or Monday December 14th, weather permitting. Haverfield Aviation will be assisting in the completion of various JCP&L maintenance items. The helicopter will either be seen transporting line workers and equipment to and from the work area(s) or will be seen hovering extensively while in the work area(s) as a line worker performs repair work via a platform that is attached to the helicopter.
Healthy trees with limbs encroaching the right-of-way may be pruned back using a method known as "Ground to Sky" pruning. This work is accomplished manually by tree crews or mechanically using a helicopter equipped with an aerial saw. Branches that fall onto access roads, maintained yard areas, agricultural fields or in streams during the manual or aerial pruning operation will be cleaned up, or moved to adjacent wooded areas by ground crews shortly after the pruning is performed.
The pilot will be in communication with any local airports, when in their airspace. The helicopter is a black MD500 helicopter with red tail number N4265J (photo attached).
