Estes Park Power and Communications is continually striving to provide the best electrical and broadband service to its customers.
In a dynamic environment like the Rocky Mountains, regular maintenance and upgrades to the electric system are required. Performing regular system maintenance provides opportunities to upgrade and improve on an ongoing basis. Capital improvement projects are continually underway to bring large-scale long-term upgrades to the system.
CR 43 Scheduled Power Outage - July 7, 2020
Estes Park Power and Communications has scheduled a power outage on July 7, 2020 along County Road 43 to allow the crew to set a new pole on the lower part of the switchbacks. The work will be done with a crane, requiring traffic control to be in place while the crate is in operation. Once the pole is set the crew will then transfer all powerlines and equipment to the new pole. In order to perform this work as quickly and safely as possible, crews must turn off power to the affected area.
The outage will begin at 3 p.m. and could last through 6 p.m. The affected area is along County Road 43 from the switchbacks to the end of the Estes Power & Communications service area, including all of Glen Haven and the Retreat. Outage notification signs have been placed along CR 43 and a map of the affected area can be found below.
