Power outages usually catch you by surprise, during storms or construction accidents.

But Morristown residents can plan on losing electricity this Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2019.

Jersey Central Power & Light has scheduled an outage from 8 am to 4 pm, affecting eight streets.

The reason is to hook up power for the apartment building under construction on South Street next to town hall, on the site of the former Calaloo Cafe, said town Administrator Jillian Barrick.

This outage had been planned for yesterday, Thursday, Nov. 14. But Mayor Tim Dougherty asked JCP&L to postpone it because of the cold weather.

Barrick said residences and businesses on these streets will be affected:

  • Crestwood Road, numbers 1, 2, 5, 6, 10, 12, 16, 17, 20, 24, 25, 30)
  • Elm Street: 17
  • Franklin Street: 9A, 9B, 9C, 13, 17
  • Glenwood Road: 1
  • Hamilton Road: 7, 15, 16, 17, 20, 26, 31, 32, 35, 39, 45, 47
  • James Street: 12
  • Maple Avenue: 111, 113, 114, 115

  1. Don’t understand how they can just close business’s for a day when doing work for a private entity and not give more warning and also compensate those businesses for their financial losses for that day. Not to mention that there are doctors offices involved , which means cancelling appointments for people that may be sick or have waited many weeks for those appointments.
    Emergencies are one thing. But there should be a way around planned shut down and people should be informed of said shutdown at least a month in advance. We were informed on Friday of Tuesdays shutdown.
