O&R's Upgrading Electric Facilities Relocated by Road Work
From now until approximately the end of February, O&R will take the opportunity presented by the required relocation project to also upgrade its electric facilities in this vicinity to improve customer service reliability.
As a result of this O&R project, motorists should expect intermittent single lane closures along East Main Street between North Street and High Point Road (Route 23) between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Brief individual power interruptions will result for only East Main Street customers when their existing electric service wires are moved to the new O&R facilities. Those electric service interruptions, which will be coordinated with 360 affected customers, are expected to be 15-30 minutes in duration.
Service interruptions to perform transformer relocations will be planned. O&R plans to schedule the service interruptions to minimize customer inconvenience by taking these outages after hours, accommodating businesses when necessary. Customers in the affected area have been notified by O&R through phone calls and municipal officials have been briefed on the project.
