Area of West Fargo to lose power on Wednesday

WEST FARGO – More than 200 homes and several businesses here will lose electricity Wednesday afternoon when Xcel Energy relocates power lines and associated equipment as part of the Main Avenue reconstruction project.

Mark Nisbet, Xcel’s principal manager for North Dakota, said the outage will mainly affect the Brookwood Mobile Home Park area south of Main Avenue in the area of Ninth Street East.

Xcel will cut the power at 1 p.m. and hopes to have it restored by about 4 p.m. Nisbet said.

Crews were putting door hangers on affected homes and businesses to let them know about the outage in advance, he said.
