Restoration Reaches Portions Of The South End Of Cheshire As Slow Progress Continues

November 1, 2011 by John Rook

The morning began with areas off of Route 10 in the northern part of the town seeing the power turned back on.
It appears that some residents in the south end of Cheshire are now sharing in their excitement.
Residents towards the southern part of the town began reporting that power was being restored at approximately 7 p.m. Traffic lights on Route 10 and businesses, that had been dark for three days, were seen lighting up.
This, after Maplecroft Plaza, Cheshire High School, and Parks and Recreation saw the lights turned back on earlier this morning.
All of this is welcome news to Cheshire, which had seen more than 90 percent of the town without power as recently as Monday evening.
Yet, a lot of work still needs to be done. According to CL&P, more than 6,000 residents and businesses are without power tonight, which is about 61 percent of its total number of customers in the town.
Keep checking back with The Cheshire Herald website for updates on CL&P's restoration progress and the Town response. Also, make sure to check out The Cheshire Herald on Facebook, where dozens of residents are sharing stories about the power outages and updating when and where the power is coming back online.
