Overnight/early morning power outage
Early this morning at approximately 3:17 AM damage to a power pole in the eastern section of Town created a widespread, town-wide power outage.
Boulder County dispatch notified the town's Public Works staff as well as Lyons Fire Protection District immediately. Crews and the town's electric contractor, N-line were onsite. The utility pole carried power for both Longmont and Lyons electric lines. The utility linemen fixed the issue and power was restored at approximately 7 am, town-wide.
We'd like to thank the quick reaction of all involved for fixing and restoring power.
Additionally, earlier in the evening, a single vehicle headed westbound, crossed over the oncoming eastbound travel lanes and crashed into the light pole, flower planters, bench and two signs. This incident was unrelated to the power outage.
