The Boyce Campus of Community College of Allegheny County will close at 6 p.m. on Friday and remain closed through Sunday so contractors can perform emergency repairs to the electrical system, according to a college spokesman.

A project to replace transformers and wiring that caused power fluctuations and outages on the campus was scheduled during the Christmas holiday break, but parts for the roughly $94,000 in repairs were not available, said David Hoovler, CCAC spokesman.

“Students have been on break, so closing the campus likely only will affect people who wanted to go to the campus on Saturday for last-minute registration,” Hoovler said, adding that a notice was posted on the college's website and sent out via Twitter.

Classes are scheduled to resume on Monday, Hoovler said.
