TOLEDO, Ohio - Five buildings in downtown Toledo are without power Friday as crews say it could take all weekend to restore electricity.
The City of Toledo says the outage was caused when a construction company working near Adams and Superior struck and underground duct bank, shorting out several underground circuits. As a result, One Government Center, the Toledo Municipal Court building and three other buildings were left in the dark.
The Safety Building was also affected and is on generator power. Police personnel are conserving energy due to the downtown outage. Non-essential functions, like public records, are closed until normal power resumes. The public should visit the Scott Park District Station to file reports.
Toledo Edison crews are working to restore power to the area, but warn it could take all weekend to get the lights back on.
