The outage is expected to begin at 6 a.m. and last for 30 minutes. Street lights on Nairn Avenue and Talbot Avenue between Grey and Panet Road will also be affected by the outage.

The outage is needed to switch the area’s electrical supply over to a new substation which will enhance service reliability in the area according to a Manitoba Hydro news release.

  • Manhattan Avenue to Castle Avenue to the north
  • Nairn Avenue to the south
  • Stapleton Street to the east
  • Gateway Road to the west
