CWLP warns of planned outages Wednesday
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS/WRSP) —
City Water, Light and Power crews will be conducting emergency repairs to the electric system Wednesday, which will cause a temporary outage to 360 customers on the west side of Springfield.
The outage will affect an area from Bradfordton Road to Archer Elevator Road between Greenbriar Drive and Iles Avenue.
It's set to begin at 2 p.m. and will last approximately one to two hours.
Crews will be replacing a pole that serves to deliver main feed to the area, which was found to be broken at the base and leaning into a tree.
To safely complete the repair, crews say the work must be completed Wednesday.
