MCDONALD CREEK BRIDGE SET TO REOPEN NEXT MONTH
Written by: ED EVANS
02/12/2018

The McDonald Creek Bridge on Old Olympic Highway near Agnew will likely re-open by the middle of next month. That’s the assessment of Clallam County Road Engineer Pat McElroy.  Crews are expected to begin the last phase of the bridge construction by pouring concrete on the road deck over the next few days or week, weather permitting. The new bridge is replacing a narrower crossing that was barely wide enough for two lanes of traffic.  The bridge has been closed since last July for the project to replace the aging old structure.  See the video at: https://vimeo.com/255293943

 

IMPORTANT POWER OUTAGE INFO FROM PUD

Be Outage Savvy

Ever see a flash or hear a loud explosion and then your power goes out? You’ve probably wondered what happened. These days people take to social media and start speculating as to the cause of an outage, and checking to see who else has lost power. While we understand the desire to share your experience and find out more about what happened, here are a few tips to help you understand the PUD outage process and get the most accurate information in the timeliest manner:

1. First, check your breakers and if they’re ok – report the outage! 

Call 360-452-9771 or 800-542-7859. You can also use the SmartHub app to report an outage, which is especially useful if it is a significant outage and all PUD incoming phone lines are in use. 

(Note: please make sure the phone numbers that PUD has on file for you are up to date, especially if you’ve recently removed a landline.)

2. Once you’ve reported it, check www.clallampud.net right on the homepage for outage updates. It may take a few minutes for an initial post to show up as the first calls come in and crews are dispatched.

3. As the outage progresses, continue to check the website for updates, which will be posted as more information is learned. If there is a single outage the PUD can usually make a relatively quick assessment and provide an estimated time of restoration, but during major storms there may be dozens of outage events over a short period of time, significantly more than the available resources to respond to and make an assessment or provide a time of restoration estimate. If you do not have internet access, tune in to your local radio station for updates:

Sequim and PA:  KSQM 91.5 FM    Port Angeles KONP 1450 AM      Forks 1490 AM

4. If the outage is occurring outside of regular business hours, a third-party answering service is taking the calls, except in the case of a significant outage where we turn on the automated phone system. While they are trying to be helpful, the answering service is not trained to be able to provide you with information as to the cause of the outage. A case in point, many on social media state that “a transformer blew.” This is very rarely the occasion. An explosive sound likely indicates a fuse has been tripped, which is doing exactly what it should be doing to protect the system, much like what your breakers do at home if there is a fault in the system. A visible flash could also be a fuse, or it could be a tree or branch in the line. There are a variety of reasons why an outage occurs. Your best source of information, again, will be the PUD website.

5. PUD crews will be responding to the parts of the system that restore power to the largest numbers of customers first, then working their way down to the more isolated outages.

7. Lastly, the best thing you can do is to be prepared before the event of an outage!  Have fresh batteries for your radios!
