Sometime before 2 a.m. Thursday morning a vehicle crash knocked out a utility pole along Ardmore Avenue. Indiana Michigan Power’s website showed at least 750 customers affected by the outage.
The traffic signal at Engle Road and Ardmore Avenue was also without power. Fort Wayne Community Schools issued the following statement regarding their South Transportation Center which is in the area affected by the outage.
“Because of a power outage at our South Transportation center, we will be unable to update our late bus status this morning. The outage has also knocked the phones out, which could cause other complications. Dispatchers will still be able to communicate with drivers through the normal radio system. However, we are asking parents and students to be patient with us as we are working to make routes run as smooth as possible today.” — Krista Stockman FWCS Public Information Officer.
Indiana Michigan Power’s outage website listed the estimated time of power restoration as 8:30 a.m. Thursday.
