SCE to use helicopters to repair tram near Rush Creek
As many as 48 helicopter flights a day near the Rush Creek trailhead in June Lake will be needed to repair an Southern California Edison tram that is currently used by SCE employees to get to hydroelectric projects in the mountains of the Rush Creek drainage.
According to the Inyo National Forest, the bulk of the flights will occur between July 10 and Sept. 9.
The project is expected to be completed by October. The average number of flights per day during this time will be about 25, according to the forest service.
