There will be a scheduled power interruption on Saipan on Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018, from 7:30am to 12pm to allow Commonwealth Utilities Corp. line crew to replace three wooden power poles with concrete poles along Chalan Tun Thomas P. Sablan in San Antonio.
This is part of an ongoing Hazard Mitigation Project that involves replacing 787 wooden poles with concrete poles.
A total of 331 wooden poles have already been replaced; the remaining 456 wooden poles will be scheduled for replacement at a later time.
Areas to be affected include Kiya 2 (2” Partial): Chalan Tun Thomas P. Sablan in San Antonio (Lililok Pl., Alu Dr., and Bua Ln.) and Afetna Road.
No water well will be affected but the A-3 wastewater lifts station will be affected.
Because of the scale of work that will be performed, CUC asks travelers to take alternate routes or to exercise caution when driving through the affected areas.
