Power Out Near Ridge and Butler, Partial Ridge Pike Closure

A traffic accident near Ridge Pike and Harmon Road has knocked out power to almost 1,000 accounts (and traffic lights) in the area of Chemical Road/North Lane and the intersection of Butler and Ridge Pikes. A reader reports that Ridge is blocked off at Butler and Chemical Roads. Another reader shared that poles are down.

The orange circle marks the power outage.

PECO’s Outage Center projected that power will be restored by 7:30 a.m. We are not sure if that will correspond with the road reopening, or if that will take longer.
