Central Maine Power customers in and around Dover-Foxcroft will be without electricity for a while.
CMP is cutting the power from midnight Saturday until 6 a-m Sunday in Dover, Guilford, Abbot, Monson, Blanchard, Willimantic, Elliotsville, Shirley, Greenville and towns and townships north of Greenville on both sides of Moosehead lake.
Portions of Dexter, Cambridge, Sangerville and Parkman will also be affected.
The outage is neccessary so that CMP crews can start up a new transmission line that will improve service in the area.
CMP began building the line last fall…it’s a 1.8 million dollar project.
