Power out for about 3,000 homes in Naperville

NAPERVILLE, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

City repair crews are working to restore electrical service to an estimated 3,000 customers in west suburban Naperville, the Naperville Sun is reporting.

Construction crews working on the Route 59 road project "bored a hole right through one of the cables" at about 1:30 p.m. Friday, City Manager Doug Krieger said.

The area of the outage, on the city's northwest side, is bounded roughly by I-88 on the north, Route 59 on the east, the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railway on the south and the EJ&E Railway on the west, Krieger said.

Constuction crews struck a below-ground electrical line, he said. "We are working on restoring power now."

Naperville police Sgt. Lou Cammiso said traffic signals on Route 59 began flashing when the rupture happened. The traffic lights were back up and functioning about 4:05 p.m., with the exception of the light at the intersection of North Aurora Road and Weston Ridge Drive, Cammiso said.

Krieger said he didn't know how soon service would be restored to homes and businesses impacted.
