10-hour power outage upcoming on 1300 block of Ft. Myer Dr.

A re-arrangement of power cables on a two telephone poles near 1301 N. Ft. Myer Dr. will create a 10-hour power outage in the immediate vicinity in the near future.  Currently a power line rises from an underground duct up along the smaller telephone pole.  Wires at the top of the smaller pole convey power to the larger pole.  The goal is to eliminate the smaller pole and have the power line rise directly on the larger pole. 

Originally the work was scheduled for this Thursday.  But with the exceptionally cold weather, Dominion Power didn't want to interrupt residents' power. The switchover will probably take place next week.
