Residents along Airport Road just east of Swift Current will experience a temporary blackout this evening.

SaskPower will conduct the planned outage while they put new poles in place to cut in a new line in the area.

According to SaskPower Spokesperson Joel Cherry, the work has been postponed multiple times due to the recent extreme cold temperatures. 

"Now that it's warming up again, this is a good time to get this work done," he said. 

The outage will affect 34 customers from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. tonight.
