Vehicle Accident Causes Power Outage, Traffic Detours in South End of Village

UPDATE: Power has been fully restored as of 5 p.m. George Street will be open to all traffic shortly. Thank you to GIPA and Harlan Electric crews for their hard work and dedication on Labor Day.

Due to a vehicle accident early this morning near the corner of Lafayette and George Streets, customers are experiencing a power outage from the Collar City Bridge and south. Repair crews are on the scene and en route but it may take several hours to repair the damage caused by this accident.

In addition, George Street is closed entirely between Lafayette Street and the Green Island Bridge causing detours there. Traffic entering or exiting Green Island should do so in the north end of the Village at Tibbits Avenue.

We are sorry for any inconvenience.

As always, if you have an emergency or otherwise need assistance from the Police or Fire Departments, call 9-1-1 immediately.
