News release from Lubbock Power & Light:

On Sunday, Aug. 25, Lubbock Power & Light (LP&L) will complete an upgrade of utility infrastructure in downtown Lubbock. 

LP&L is upgrading electric line facilities in order to improve the long-term reliability of the City’s electrical infrastructure. 

In order to safely complete the project, LP&L will have a planned outage beginning at 8 a.m. The estimated length of service interruption is 6 hours although it may be shorter depending on how quickly crews can safely complete work.  This outage will only affect a small number of businesses in the central downtown area.  All affected businesses have been contacted by LP&L and preparations have been made with those businesses in order to efficiently complete the necessary work. 

The Lubbock Police Department will be working closely with LP&L as the work is being conducted in order to minimize any inconvenience due to affected traffic lights. 

The City of Lubbock encourages each citizen to use caution when traveling through work zones for the safety of the workers, other citizens and yourself.
