I.F. Power to upgrade equipment in Eastview subdivision

Idaho Falls Power plans to start maintenance work Monday on its underground distribution system in the Eastview subdivision.

The five-week project will involve burying new electrical conduit within existing easements and is expected to greatly reduce power outages in the area. No interruptions in service are anticipated while the work is being completed, but if an interruption becomes necessary it will be short and affected residents will be notified in advance.

Crews expect to finish one block per week, and will need access to customers' property. Individual customers will be notified in advance of crews working in their yard.

Customers with questions can call 612-8430 for more information.
