The purpose of the power  interruptions is to de-energize utility lines and allow  CUC  linemen the ability  to conduct maintenance  of the power distribution  system through the replacement  of wooden poles with concrete poles  at certain  locations  of the power grid. The scheduled power  interruption is a  continuation of  CUC’s  ongoing  hazard  mitigation  project  that  focuses  on  strengthening  and hardening  CUC’s  power  distribution system  through  the  replacement of 787  wooden  poles  with concrete  poles. Of  the  787  total wooden  poles  to  be  replaced  with  concrete  poles, 755  pole replacements  have been made by CUC and its contractor.

Because of the scale of work that will be performed,  CUC asks travelers to take alternate  routes or to exercise  caution  when driving  through the working area.
