Power Off in Areas of Downtown - Sunday Morning at 1:00 am

BE PREPARED!  THE POWER MIGHT BE OFF IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
(64801) – About 700 homes and businesses will be without power overnight Saturday night/Sunday morning this weekend as Empire District will have a brief service interruption and electricity will be off.

WHAT: Power will be OFF
WHERE: Downtown Joplin (see map)
WHEN: Sunday, March 4
WHAT TIME: 1:00 am – 3:00 am

This scheduled outage is the result of substation maintenance and is necessary to ensure the safety of those involved. This project is part of an ongoing initiative to strengthen the delivery system and enhance reliability for customers.

The Joplin Police Department want to remind everyone that some traffic lights will be dark in some locations. Also all streetlights will be out so that makes traveling a little treacherous.

“Anytime a stoplight is not functioning, drivers are required to come to a complete STOP at the intersection and treat it as a 4-way-stop,” according to the JPD.
