Power restored in Colchester

Posted: Updated:

Green Mountain Power crews working to improve reliability ran into some trouble instead.

The utility picks beautiful days to make upgrades when outages are unlikely. But during work Friday, a weakness in a line knocked out power to about 7,700 homes and businesses in the Colchester area. Traffic lights also went down.

"We know it's really difficult to lose power in the middle of the day. That's why we got the crews out there as fast as we can and we are working to get the power back on as quickly as we can," said Dotty Schnure.

The power was out from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. when crews rerouted power to another line.
