Residents and businesses in downtown Auburn will be affected by power outages this morning while Central Maine Power makes emergency transformer repairs.
Repairs to transformers at Great Falls Plaza and on the corner of Main and Court Streets will begin immediately and are expected to be completed by noon.
The traffic signals at Court and Main Streets and Court and Turner streets will be inoperative during the repairs, and traffic will be reduced to one lane on Main Street. Signage will be in place at the effected intersections, converting them to 4-way stops.
Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes to avoid delays. Use caution travelling through the area, especially with the significant pedestrian presence for the Great Falls Balloon Festival.
