Work on a buried power cable at the intersection of Mission Road and Center Avenue has forced motorists to detour around it for several days now.
According to KEA CEO Darron Scott, the first closure was to pull the cable out of its conduit, but they found a blockage inside, and were forced to dig up more of the road to reach the blocked spot.
As soon as the conduit is repaired, KEA can replace the old cable with a new one.
The underground cable originally failed two weeks ago, causing a brief outage in parts of downtown at the time.
Closed Intersection Work Should Be Done Soon
