WESTPORT, Conn. – Connecticut Light & Power will have 51 line crews and 15 tree crews working to restore power in Westport starting at 3 p.m. Sunday, Fire Inspector Nate Gibbons said.
The crews will work through the night, he added.
Starting at 10 a.m. Sunday, the power company had 33 line and 10 tree crews in Westport, and by noon, there were 38 line and 12 tree crews, Gibbons said in his daily update from the Emergency Operations Center.
The areas of focus for power restoration Sunday include:
? Greens Farms Road from Maple Lane east up to Route 1 near the Fairfield line, including the side streets and Bulkley Avenue South
? Side streets off Hillspoint Road and Compo Road South
? Sylvan Road North
? Joanne Circle
? Roseville Road and its side streets
?Bayberry Lane and Sturges Highway, south of the Merritt
Crews hope to also work north of the Merritt later Sunday afternoon or into the night, Gibbons said.
“If you don’t hear your street mentioned, it is because CL&P does not provide a status for every road in town,” Gibbons said. “If you are on a side road off a mentioned road, that’s a pretty good sign for you.”
In addition to the CL&P crews, the town’s Public Works Department has clean-up crews working on Cavalry Road and Marion Road, Gibbons said. Crews will also be working to clear damaged trees that fell overnight on Burrs Farms, Mortar Rock and Overrock Roads, Gibbons added.
As of Sunday morning, four Westport gas stations were out of fuel and closed, Gibbons said. Many New York residents, he said, drove to Westport Saturday for fuel. He did not know the status of other stations in town, but said fire inspectors would be checking the open stations to make sure people stocking up on fuel are following the law.
