Southeast Lincoln Traffic Backed Up Due To Power Outage

Posted by: Erika Summers

Lincoln Electric System officials are reporting a power outage from 81st and 84th Street and A Street to Hickory.  It happened right in the middle of the morning commute for drivers around 8:30 am.  The traffic light at 84th and A Street is out.

LES crews are on the scene trying to fix the problem. They say the trouble is from the underground cables.

They ask drivers to try and avoid the area if at all possible as traffic is backed up.
