Planned Power Outage to Proceed

Monday, December 19, 2016 @ 5:52 AM

Prince George, B.C.-  More  than 1700  B.C. Hydro customers  In the west end of P.G. will  have their electricity  cut  as of 9 this morning   as B.C. Hydro  goes ahead with a planned outage.

The  power will be off from Bunce Road to Telachick  Road and all  side roads in between,  as  Hydro  moves lines  from  old poles to new ones erected  further off the side of the  planned   widening of highway 16.

The outage is supposed to last until  3 this afternoon.   If the work is completed before  then,  then the  power will be restored earlier.

B.C. Hydro said the work would go ahead unless  it was deemed too cold to  do so.   The break in the cold snap means conditions  are  fine to proceed with the  work.




Thanks for the update Elaine. I went to the hydro website and they didn’t have this info on their planned outage page.

4 pm and it looks like they still have a ways to go
