A City of Palo Alto electrical upgrade project will cause intermittent power outages in south Palo Alto through June, the Utilities Department has announced.
Work will go on Monday through Friday, from approximately 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Residents in the area will notice PAR Electric construction crews with their line trucks, equipment and materials working on the overhead electric distribution system.
Partial street blockage could occur from time to time, but in general, impact to commute traffic should be minimal, officials said. No major roads or lanes will be involved or blocked on a permanent basis, the department noted.
Outages planned for May 24 will take place on the 4000 block of Park Boulevard between Darlington and Newberry courts, and the 200 block of Whitclem Drive at Park Boulevard.
Electric service will need to be interrupted during the course of the project with some customers experiencing one or two (some customers, possibly three) planned outages during the conversion project. Affected residents will receive individual notices before the outages occur, the department said.
Other outage information is available through Electric Operations at 650-496-6936 or 650-496-6914.
