The map shows the CL&P power circuits for the Town of West Hartford and their associated circuit numbers. A larger version, where residents can zoom in on their streets, is located on West Hartford's website.
A CL&P representative advised West Hartford's Emergency Operations Committee that they will be working to restore power in the following areas on Friday: 47N8 and 47N2, including Hamilton Ave., Kane St., Oakwood Ave., Park Rd., South Main St., Newport Ave., and Glenbrook areas.
CL&P has also indicated that crews are working on the 4A7 area, including Greeenhouse Rd., Route 173 to Cambridge St., and Grove St. areas. Circuits carrying town priorities which include the Court of St. James Elderly Housing at 144 South Main St. (47N2) and Hall High School (3B05) "will be worked with a goal of restoration today," CL&P wrote in a Completion Action Plan distributed at the Emergency Operations Center Friday morning.
There are a total of 19 crews working in West Hartford on Friday: 13 line crews and 6 tree crews. CL&P representative Watson Collins told town officials Friday morning, "Our goal is that we'll pick up 5,000 customers today."
West Hartford officials will continue to fill in the map as power restoration is reported. If anyone knows of an area which has power but has not been highlighted, please let us know. The information on the map has been provided by the West Hartford police department. Additional information from CL&P on powered up areas is available but has not yet been confirmed. Once those areas are confirmed the map will be updated.
The areas in GREEN currently have power.
The areas shaded in GRAY have the power backbone energized. This will allow CL&P to begin providing power to "side taps" in the area – or to begin restoring power to other areas within that circuit grid.
As more areas of the map are filled in, the map will be updated.
CL&P's outage map, which many have been using as a guideline, is being constantly updated. Numbers are changing constantly, and according to CL&P will sometimes indicate more customers are without power than it did earlier. CL&P said that occurs as circuits are turned on and recorded, but then still damaged areas within those circuits are dropped from the list.
