There will be a scheduled power interruption on Friday, March 9, and Saturday, March 10, from 6am to 11am.
The purpose of the power interruption is to de-energize primary lines and allow the Commonwealth Utilities Corp. line crew to safely replace eight 45-foot wooden poles with concrete poles along Chalan Pale Arnold Road on Lower Navy Hill.
The pole replacement task is a sub-project of the CUC Hazard Mitigation Project aimed at strengthening and hardening the power grid through the replacement of 787 wooden poles with concrete poles.
Since the commencement of the project, 338 of 787 wooden poles have been replaced.
The Lower Navy Hill area will be affected by this power outage but not water wells. The S-8 wastewater lift station will be affected.
Travelers commuting northbound and southbound on Chalan Pale Arnold Road in the area of Lower Navy Hill are asked to exercise caution when traveling through the working areas.
