There will be rolling roadblocks on Southern End roads this week to allow a large transformer to be moved to the new Wildcat Point generating plant in nearby Cecil County, Md.
According to Maryland State Highway Association officials, the transformer weighs 1.4 million pounds. It will be unloaded in Port Deposit and moved through Cecil County on the week of March 5.
The route will probably be similar to ones used by haulers moving equipment to the generating plant in January, 2016.
That's when a generator was moved to the plant. It came into Little Britain Township from Chester County on Rt. 272 and continued west to Little Britain Rd. South. It then turned left onto that road and continued south to Rt. 222. It then traveled over Rt. 222 back into Maryland.
During that move, state police closed roads on the route as the generator was moved.
