The Atlanta Streetcar will be out of commission for a couple of days.
The Streetcar suspended service on Monday, Feb. 26 at 6 p.m. “for emergency repairs to a Georgia Power underground cable that poses the risk of an extended loss of power to customers.”
“The cable failure is located at the Georgia Power facility near the Butler Substation on Auburn Avenue,” a press release from the city says. “In order to repair the cable, power crews must access the streetcar right-of-way at the corner of Auburn Avenue and Jesse Hill Road; the intersection is located directly along the ASC alignment.
“Work to repair the cable failure is expected to last approximately two days. ASC will resume normal service on Wednesday, February 28 at 6 a.m.”
