Lights Restored After Rush Hour Power Outage

Lights Restored After Rush Hour Power Outage

Winnipeg police direct traffic at the intersection of McPhillips Street and Jefferson Avenue during a power outage on Tuesday, February 7, 2012. Manitoba Hydro cut power to numerous areas in the North End at the start of rush hour in order to repair damage caused by a pole top fire at hydro's McPhillips Street station last week. Lights were also out along Main Street from Chief Peguis Trail to Jefferson Avenue, and along McGregor Street, Henderson Highway and Salter Street. (STAN MILOSEVIC / MANITOBAPHOTOS.COM)
