A contractor for Duke Energy is performing work on power lines along West Main Street, which is causing traffic impacts and potential power disruptions to nearby residents.
Currently (Friday, Feb. 24), there is a lane closure and flaggers are directing traffic.
Large utility and construction equipment, as well as utility crews, are present in work zones. Crews are also trimming vegetation to allow workers to safely access equipment.
Duke Energy reports that their work consists of upgrading reclosers to improve outcomes during power outages. More information: https://www.duke-energy.com/our-company/future/self-healing-technology
This project is expected to conclude in late March, weather permitting.
