Who: CPS Energy
What: In response to a cable being pulled and breaking a 90 ft utility pole, CPS Energy will close southbound lanes of WW White at I-10 to make repairs to the damaged pole that has resulted in low hanging wires. The closure is necessary to ensure the safety of those in the vicinity and to restore power to our customers that are affected by this damaged equipment.
- Repairs are being made to our infrastructure that was damaged by a personal vehicle.
- The line is de-energized and once all crews and specialized equipment arrive on site and prepare the area for a safe repair, it will take approximately 3-4 hours to complete. The east and west bound lanes of I-10 are expected to be shut down momentarily while crews work to raise the wire.
- For the safety of our customers, CPS Energy reminds customers to stay away from downed wires at all times. Customers should always assume that a fallen power line is live and should call CPS Energy and 911 immediately to report a fallen power line.
- Motorists are asked to slow their speed and use caution through the affected area as utility crews work to make the repair. For additional safety tips, please visit cpsenergy.com/safety or search for “safety” from our home page.
- We appreciate everyone’s patience as we work to repair our equipment as quickly and safely as possible.
