Due to transformer replacement work at the Avenue A substation, pedestrian traffic and some parking spaces will be affected from November 17 to December 14, 2014.
There will be no parking on both sides of East 6th Street from corner of Avenue A to the end of the substation from Monday, November 17 until Sunday, December 14, 2014.
On the day of the transformer installation tentatively scheduled for March 1, 2015, East 6th Street will be closed to vehicular traffic and there will be parking restrictions on Avenue A between East 5th Street and East 6th Street on the weekend of February 28.
These disruptions are necessary to accommodate cranes, heavy equipment, and an oversized trailer needed to remove and replace the transformer. This work will help us continue to provide reliable electrical service in your community.
There will be no interruptions to your gas or electric services during this operation.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
Hope that you have noted all this in your 2015 calendars.
Anyway, so you know what all this means?
Big crane and transformer photo opps galore!

Anyone know how many transformers are inside the substation… and how often they actually need to be replaced….?
