Published 3:06 pm Wednesday, March 22, 2023

SALISBURY – Businesses and residents in the 100 block of West Innes Street may be without power beginning Monday, March 27, at 11 p.m. through Tuesday, March 28, at 7 a.m. as Duke Energy replaces an electrical panel, weather permitting.

Residents in The Plaza building, 100 West Innes Street, will be without power during the entire period. It is possible that the outage also could affect other businesses and residents in downtown Salisbury, though temporarily. Plaza building residents also will be without water. The residents have been notified.

As crews are able to access manholes and multiple vaults in the immediate area, Duke Energy will use the opportunity to perform additional underground work during the same period.

The 100 blocks of North Church and West Council streets also will be closed to vehicle traffic. If traffic signals in the immediate area are affected, drivers should treat the intersections as four-way stops. City crews will be on-site at The Plaza building during the duration of the project.
