Power back on in Chinatown-ID ahead of schedule

The planned 20-hour power outage in the Chinatown-International District ended hours earlier than expected when City Light crews completed installation of a new power supply late Wednesday morning.

Work crews didn’t run into some complications they had anticipated, and the old cable was removed easily, according to City Light.

The outage began at 11 p.m. Tuesday and left several blocks in the dark overnight. Special arrangements were made for some residents in the blacked-out area and police provided extra service to the area throughout.

The new line gives the Chinatown-International District a second power source, improves reliability and provides more capacity for future development, says City Light.
