GREENWICH, Conn., -- A transformer fire on Riveside Avenue saw 166 Eversource customers in Greenwich lose power Friday morning, Greenwich Police said.
That number has been reduced to two as of 10 a.m. Those two customers are connected to the damaged utility pole.
The utility pole is owned and maintained by Frontier Communications. The repair work will take several hours after the arrival of the pole, police said, and the repair work will take until at least the late afternoon or early evening depending on availability of a new utility pole.
During the repair process, two-way traffic will be maintained with one lane closed for construction vehicles to stage their equipment and work. There will be occasional total road closures on Riverside Avenue in the area of Buxton Lane during the repair process to ensure the safety of the public and the utility workers. All pedestrian, bicycle and motor vehicle traffic should avoid the area until tonight to minimize any traveling inconvenience, police said.
