Over 200 homes in the areas of French, Sills, Bailey and Maxwelton roads will spend a night without power next week.

Puget Sound Energy has a planned outage set for Wednesday, March 22. The lights will go off at 9 p.m. and won’t come back on until 5 a.m. the next morning, according to a news release.

The overnight outage is so crews can set a utility pole, connect electrical wires and related equipment.

“We’re fixing some equipment that was damaged in a previous storm,” said Teresa Coe, a project manager with the utility company.

A total of 212 customers will be affected, all of which have been notified, she said. The areas in the dark include homes on most of French and Sills Roads and a section of Maxwelton and Bailey Roads.

Puget Sound Energy is urging residents to plan ahead, especially those who rely on medical equipment that requires electricity. Make arrangements ahead of time, and charge cell phones, unplug computers and other sensitive electronics, and know how to manually operate garage doors and electric gates.
