There will be a scheduled power interruption this Friday, Aug. 23, from 9am to 11am.
The power outage will affect the Northern Marianas College, Joeten Dandan Supermarket, San Vicente Elementary School, Finasisu Lane, Chalan Tun Antonio Apa, Rasimu Lane, Rte. 307 (CMS Quarry), Tanduki Drive, Katupat Drive, Fatiguan Lane, Bentana Drive, Katbon Road, and Laulau Bay Drive.
Water services may be affected based on tank levels for the areas of Lower San Vicente, South San Vicente, Upper Dandan Homestead and Obyan.
The W-8 wastewater lift station will be affected.
Traffic lights to be affected include the NMC traffic light, Shell Dandan gas station traffic light, Airport Road traffic light, and San Vicente traffic light.
The purpose of the power interruption is to de-energize the primary lines to allow Commonwealth Utilities Corp. line crew to safely install one air break switch in San Vicente, before the Dandan Road and Isa Drive traffic light and to safely remove existing air break switch near NMC.
This work is part of the Super Typhoon Yutu restoration to strengthen and harden the integrity of the power distribution system throughout the island.
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.
