Construction error causes power outage in Frisco

FRISCO – The business day started with a power outage for many in Frisco Thursday.

A construction crew working on North 7th Avenue cut a cable that serves the town’s downtown area, said cel spokesman Steve Roalstad.

The power went out for many businesses and residences at 8:40 a.m. Roalstad said cel crews worked to reroute power to their customers while the service line was repaired.

“We try to provide redundancy – that way, if we have an outage, we can send power on a different path,” he said.

Power was restored to most customers by 9:25 a.m. and fully restored before 10 a.m.

Repairs to the broken cable have been completed, but Roalstad said, “Because there’s still construction in the area, we’ll probably have to go back and finalize repairs in a day or so.”
