LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (WCAX) - A planned power outage will leave Lake Placid residents in the dark overnight Tuesday.

National Grid says the outage will start Tuesday at 9 p.m. and will last until 7 a.m. on Wednesday.

The power interruption will allow the utility to replace a transmission line to the village which it says will improve resiliency.

There will be no disruption to schools in the district.

The $8 million project has been under construction since July, replacing infrastructure on the transmission line serving the village.
