As part of the ongoing efforts to curtail brownouts in Bloomingdale, PEPCO will be shutting power to Channing Street, N.W., the NORTH side of Bryant Street, N.W., and First Street, N.W. between Bryant and Channing Streets NW.
The reason for the shutdown is to replace ``very old`` cable that presents a fire hazard with modern, more reliable cable. PEPCO has been is this part of Bloomingdale all day yesterday and today, and my understanding is that PEPCO knocked on affected residents` doors today with the message. In the event folks did not get that message though, I thought I`d follow-up.
Best to all,
Commissioner James Fournier
