DTE: Planned Power Outage

August 21, 2018

Some residents in east Ferndale will experience a brief power outage on Thursday, August 23, as DTE works to transition electrical customers to their new substation infrastructure, located at Nine Mile and Hilton.

The transition is part of a planned infrastructure upgrade that will provide area residents with access to an upgraded electrical system and more reliable power.

During the transitions, power will be turned off for customers for up to four hours. Changeovers are being scheduled by area/neighborhood. Thursday’s outage will affect the following areas:

  • Jarvis Street on the North over to Wanda Street then both sides of Wanda Street up to Nine Mile Road, Wanda Street on the East, E. 8 Mile Road on the South, and the RR Tracks on the West.
  • In addition to homes and businesses in this area, there is the potential that the traffic signal at Nine Mile and Wanda could be affected.

Please note that homes and businesses on 9 Mile should not be affected.

DTE reports that all affected electrical customers have received direct communication from the utility company about this planned work. If you have NOT received this communication, or if you have additional questions, please contact the City's Community and Economic Development Department at 248-546-2363
