Failed transformer causes brief Tuesday power outage

A failed transformer in the Port Madison area was responsible for a brief, north end power outage Tuesday morning, according to a Puget Sound Energy spokesperson.

According to PSE a circuit was blown shortly after 7 a.m., cutting power to about 1,200 homes. Traffic signals on State Route 305 at Day Road and Sportsman Club Road were also left dark, creating long backups amid the morning commute.

Power was restored at 8:02 a.m., according to PSE.
