LINCOLN CITY, Ore. – Approximately 500 Pacific Power customers in Lincoln City will experience a power interruption in the early morning hours of Nov. 6 while company crews complete important maintenance work on the local electric distribution system.
The outage will:
· Begin just after midnight and last until 7 a.m. Wednesday morning, Nov. 6.
· It will affect an area bordered on the west by Keel Avenue, on the south by NE 21st Street, on the east by Tide Avenue and on the north by NW 36th Street.
While there are no traffic lights on the portion of Highway 101 that runs through the middle of the affected area, street lights will be out and Pacific Power will have flaggers surrounding work sites to assure safety for employees and drivers.
All affected customers have been notified individually about the outage.
“If you rely on an alarm clock in the morning, we’d suggest using an alternative such as a battery-operated clock or a cell phone alarm,” said Doris Johnston, Pacific Power regional community manager. “Our crews will be working through the night to minimize disruption and inconvenience to customers and the community.”
Johnston also suggests that resort and local recreational rental properties in the area let guests and visitors know about the outage, as they won’t have been notified by the utility.
If customers have questions about the planned outage, they can call Pacific Power toll-free at 1-888-221-7070. Any outages during that time outside the affected area should continue to be reported to Pacific Power at 1-877-508-5088.
