The Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) is sending a crew to the corner of Lincoln, Halsted and Fullerton to direct traffic until the outages at that location can be repaired.

If you need to report an outage, please call ComEd at 1-800-334-7661.  You can also text OUT to 26633.    

If there is an emergency life safety issue, call 911.
Commonwealth Edison has dispatched crews as noted above to begin repairs, and will be working until all the outages have been resolved.  
I have been in constant contact with Commonwealth Edison representatives in regards to this situation, and I will continue to keep you apprised, as I am made aware of further developments.
