Power outage hits Old Town
A transformer attached to a power pole in Old Town failed Thursday morning, causing a power outage in parts of the neighborhood, a Park City official said.
Hugh Daniels, who manages City Hall’s emergency programs, said the transformer is located on the 500 block of Park Avenue. The cause of the failure was not immediately known, but there was windy, wintry weather on Thursday morning.
Daniels said the outage impacted Main Street, Woodside Avenue, Park Avenue, Swede Alley and Marsac Avenue. It was not clear which sections of the streets lost power. Daniels said the Marsac Building was one of the places where the power went out.
Rocky Mountain Power said in an online posting the outage affected upward of 1,239 customers. The company estimated power would be restored at 12:30 p.m.
