EWEB plans overnight outage
October 20, 2016
The Eugene Water & Electric Board must replace a rotted transmission pole on the north side of Highway 126 adjacent to Leaburg Lake. In order to replace the pole, line technicians will de-energize the overhead lines, resulting in an electric outage to customers from the north end of Leaburg Lake east to Thomson Lane.
In order to mitigate the impact to customers, EWEB will replace the pole overnight. The planned outage will begin at 10 p.m. on Oct. 20 with restoration expected by 5 a.m. Oct. 21. The outage created by the pole replacement will affect approximately 400 customers.
The work will also require EWEB to temporarily close the westbound lane of Highway 126 E during the pole change out. Flaggers will control traffic.
