 Power was restored within 20 minutes to most Department of Public Utilities’ customers affected by the downtown electric outage that began a little after 1 p.m. Wednesday.

An underground electric line was hit during construction resulting in an outage along Trinity Drive between Levy Lane at the Century Link building  and DP Road; it also included some businesses on Nectar and 15th Street.

DPU electric line crews were able to isolate the damaged line and restore power to most customers by 1:20 PM.  Businesses on Knecht Street remained without power as DPU crews made repairs to restore power by 5:05 p.m.
