Permanent Repairs Will Span Several Days
WASHINGTON , D.C. - Pepco has restored power to the Sibley Plaza Apartments, a senior and family residential facility located at 1140 North Capitol St., N.W., Washington, D.C.
As Pepco crews continued to perform additional repairs and testing in the North Capitol Street area to ensure no further problems arose, the Sibley Plaza Apartment complex experienced an outage due to blown fuses.
The blown fuses have been replaced allowing the restoration of power.
"Pepco would like to thank the District of Columbia government for its continuous support throughout this event," said Thomas H. Graham, President Pepco Region. "Cooling buses were immediately deployed to assist the residents as crews worked expeditiously to restore power."
Pepco crews will continue to work on permanent repairs to the underground network. During construction, a number of side streets will be closed. The impact to traffic is expected to be minimal.
The installation of permanent cable will take several days to complete.
