Power outage, road closure scheduled for small section of Bridgeport

BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. (WDTV) - A section of Bridgeport, including one of the city's schools, will be without power and a local road will be closed Monday, February 20.

Center Street will be closed from Main Street to Philadelphia Avenue from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. to provide electric to the new lights at the new city parking lot off of Center Street. The utility pole that sits in the middle of the entrance to the new parking lot will also need to be removed.

According to a release from the city, the school and the Chruch of Christ will be without power. This outage isn't expected to impact residents.

The city said they planned the outage for Monday because school was not in session that day.

In the event of bad weather, the project will have to be rescheduled. Anyone with questions or concerns can contact the City of Bridgeport at 304-842-8206.
