The Grays Harbor Public Utility District is notifying customers on a portion of Mox Chehalis Road and the surrounding area of a planned power outage beginning at 8:00 AM on June 27, 2018. The outage is expected to last until roughly 6:00 PM and will impact around 133 customers.

The outage will impact customers from 1143 Mox Chehalis Road north to State Route 8 and east to the Straddleline ORV Park. Also impacted will be customers on roads adjacent to Mox Chehalis Road, including Foreman Road, Heslap Road, Mox Chehalis Road East, Mox Chehalis Branch Road and La Belle Lane. In addition, customers on William McCleary and Cooper Roads, Marissa Lane and Maple Drive will also be impacted. In the days leading up to the event, all impacted customers will receive telephone messages from the PUD notifying them of the upcoming outage.

The work will accommodate the replacement of the Mox Chehalis Bridge, the contract for which was recently awarded to Quigg Brothers Construction by the Grays Harbor County Commissioners. PUD crews will coordinate with Grays Harbor County crews to relocate utilities to facilitate a bridge repair/replacement project.

In preparation for this outage, customers are advised to take precautions with any electronic equipment such as computers, televisions, and microwaves by unplugging those items. You should leave them disconnected until after the power has been fully restored.

The outage time of 10 hours is only an estimate and power could be restored at any time as work is completed. Therefore, it is not safe to do electrical work or repairs during that period of time.
