COLUMBIA — Two days after a summer storm ripped through mid-Missouri, Columbia crews were still working to restore power to some areas of town.
Electrical work in the Fairview Road area is expected to be done by Thursday night, the release said. Once work is done, roadblocks will be removed and access to the road will be restored. Crews are still working to restore power to other areas, including Spring Valley Road, Lynnwood Drive and Brandon Road.
To alleviate the slow progress brought on by excessive debris, damage and restricted access issues, City Manager Mike Matthes has approved utility crews to work 16-hour days, the release said.
