ML&P Power Transfer

On Tuesday, July 18th, Municipal Light and Power will be transferring the electrical service for the following buildings:

  • WFSC, SU, Bookstore/GSS, ANSEP, EIB, ECB, NSB, Central Garage, and SSB.
These buildings will be temporarily serviced by electrical equipment on West Campus while new gear is installed on Providence Drive near SSB. ML&P is confident the work will be conducted without a power outage; however, the risk of short outages exists any time this equipment is handled. It will take most of the day to complete the transfer.

Later this week - tentatively Thursday - this work will be conducted again, but in reverse order, to transfer the load to the new equipment.

UPDATE: Partial Closure of Seawolf Drive

Starting Monday, July 10 Seawolf Drive will experience a partial closure. This is to conduct repairs on a failed fire hydrant next to the Rasmuson Hall. Traffic will detour through the Sports Center West Lot. Due to the detour traffic parking will not be available in the Sports Center West Lot.

This project was previously announced for June 23. Circumstances forced a delay in the schedule.
