Black Hills Energy will replace the underground power service lines beginning immediately.
The areas affected will be Whitetail Drive from the highway to the top of Whitetail (near McLeods home). Also Lynx, Cougar, Bobcat and Mule Deer. Also Birch from the bottom to the top will be affected.
All existing underground power service lines are to be updated as well as the various transformers in the affected area. The excavating work will be in the road right of way for the most part but there are areas where the contractor plans to bore under the road or driveways.
Residents in the affected area should be aware of the activity near the road as well as there may be temporary power outages in the affected area. Further information will be posted when available.
