In order to perform repairs in the electrical substation due to malfunctioning low voltage breakers, a power outage of two hours in duration will occur on Thursday, June 14, between the hours of 3 and 5pm at 90 Atkinson Road.

If all the breakers cannot be replaced within the time frame identified, a future outage will be scheduled.

While this work is underway, alternate power from the Centre for Fine Arts will support fire systems and one elevator will remain in service.  All apartments and common areas (including laundry facilities) will be without power for the duration of the work.  Corridor lighting and stairwell lighting will be limited to what is on the emergency lighting system.
