A planned power outage for about 350 West Penn Power customers in the Alle-Kiski Valley is scheduled for Thursday.

Customers in the areas of Bakerstown Road, Cherry Valley Road, Saxonburg Boulevard and Sun Mine Road will be affected in the Tarentum, West Deer, Saxonburg and Buffalo Township areas.

Customers may experience interruptions between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The outages will allow crews to transfer power lines back to their original poles after being moved to temporary poles for a bridge replacement on Bakerstown Road earlier this year. The lines had to be moved for crews to safely work on the road.

“Now it’s just time to put the system back to normal again,” said Todd Meyers, West Penn Power spokesman.

Customers will be notified of the outage via an automated phone message.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
