Power restored to Richmond Road area in Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A brief power outage left businesses, homes and streets in the dark in the Richmond Road area of Lexington on Wednesday evening.

Kentucky Utilities says an insulator problem at a substation near the Kentucky- American Water Company building led to the outage that affected more than 6,000 K-U customers.

Lexington Police used inverters to power dark traffic signals along always busy Richmond Road near New Circle Road.  Officers directed traffic where signals were dark.  K-U crews began working on the problem immediately and power was restored around 10:00 p.m.
