Important maintenance work to upgrade the PPL power lines on the Williams Grove-West Shore 230-kV line will take place beginning in May 2018 and end in November 2018. PPL will not be replacing the tower structures that support these power lines.
Monroe Township property owners affected by this maintenance project have already been notified by PPL. Those properties notified will see construction crews intermittently accessing the transmission line easement in their area as needed.
PPL Electric Utilities will be using helicopters to minimize physical disturbances to properties during this maintenance work, so area residents should be prepared to see low flying helicopters in the area as work progresses.
A temporary staging/parking area for equipment necessary to complete project work is being established at the intersection of Williams Grove and W. Lisburn Roads. All required State and County permits for this staging/parking area have been properly obtained.
