COLORADO SPRINGS, Co. - Just over 3,000 customers suddenly lost power in northeast Colorado Springs on Wednesday evening.
The impacted area is mostly along Research Blvd, east of Chapel Hills.
As of 9:35pm, CSU spokesperson Mark Murphy said crews were still trying to determine the cause of the outage and re-route power.
Murphy said the computer-estimated time of restoration was around 1:30am. However, he hopes to have the lights back on for everyone well before that time.
He doesn't believe the outage is weather-related, and didn't know of any other incidents in the area, such as car wrecks, that could have caused damage to power structures.
