Transformer move planned over Route 152 in Fallston Tuesday night, Wednesday morning


A large electrical transformer will be moved over one of the main roads in the Fallston area late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

Members of the Fallston Community Council were briefed about the move at their meeting early Tuesday evening at the Fallston Fire House.

Dave Williams, a member of the fire company and spokesman for the Harford Fire & Ambulance Association, said the transformer would be moved along I-95 and Route 152 to the site of the new Baltimore Gas & Electric Fallston Substation near the intersection of Route 152 (Mountain Road) and Route 147 (Harford Road).

Williams said the transformer is expected to use Route 152 from the I-95 interchange in Joppa to the substation site between 11 p.m. Tuesday and 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Route 152 is heavily used in both directions during the morning rush, which most days begins about 5:30 a.m.

Linda Foy, a spokesperson for BGE, confirmed the planned move.

"The transformer is being transported tonight under state police escort which is standard for moving this kind of equipment," Foy wrote in an e-mail shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday. "It should arrive at the new substation later this evening."

Foy said BGE informed the county's emergency manager in advance of the move.
