Power Back On in Downtown Annapolis

New equipment being installed at a substation caused an outage for approximately 5,000 Annapolis residents, said a BGE spokesperson.

About 5,000 Annapolis-area residents lost power Thursday between approximately 11:30 a.m. and 12:40 p.m. after Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) installed some new equipment.

"We were putting in some new equipment at one of our substations," said BGE spokesperson Rachael Lighty. "So power was lost to about 5,000 customers in the Annapolis area."

According to the 's Twitter feed, officers directed traffic at Main, Conduit  and Duke of Gloucester streets downtown until traffic lights became operational again.

Traffic lights were also out on Forest and Bywater roads, Gemini Drive, Hilltop Lane and Spa Road, according to Annapolis police.

All service was restored as of 12:40 p.m. Thursday, according to Lighty.
