Girdwood outage update 3 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19
At 3:00 p.m. Chugach re-energized a segment of distribution line that feeds a communications site at Bird Point, restoring power to the last location affected by this morning’s downed line.
Today crews mobilized to the site of the broken transmission pole and began preparing to replace the pole and its guys and anchors. Currently Chugach plans to replace the pole tomorrow and restring wire and re-energize the transmission line between Girdwood and Indian on Thursday. Plans may change due to working conditions and progress.
