DETROIT (AP) — Low-flying helicopters are expected to be seen throughout the southeastern portion of the state starting next week as part of a power line inspection effort.

The May 22 to May 30 flyovers are for ITCTransmission and Michigan Electric Transmission Co. They're looking for damage, wear or other potential problems.

The semi-annual aerial inspections of high-voltage transmission towers and lines are part of regular procedures. Flights take place weather-permitting in all or parts of Ingham, Jackson, Hillsdale, Lenawee, Washtenaw, Livingston, Oakland, Macomb, St. Clair, Wayne and Monroe counties.

ITCTransmission and Michigan Electric Transmission are subsidiaries of Novi-based ITC Holdings Corp.

The flights began this week in western Michigan and will cover nearly all of the Lower Peninsula, concluding in northern Michigan around June 20.
