Crews from Emera Maine will be repairing the underground electrical system in downtown Bangor early Thursday morning.

The work will begin at 12:01 a.m. Thursday and should be restored by 5 a.m. Thursday.

The outages will affect customers at 2 Hammond Street (Hammond Street Senior Center), offices and businesses at 6 State Street, and 8-40 Harlow Street (Norumbega Hall).

The public is urged to use caution, move over when possible, and pass at a safe speed if approaching utility crews working on or alongside roadways.

This is a necessary interruption to enable an upgrade the system to be completed in the safest possible manner, according to Emera. Customers may report outages or ask questions by calling Emera at (207) 973-2020 or 1-855-EMERA11 (1-855-363-7211).
