Approximately 80 customers around the area of Louisiana Avenue and La Salle Street in New Orleans will experience a power outage beginning at 8 a.m. Monday so that a portion of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Southeast Louisiana Urban Flood Control Project can be completed.

The outage is necessary so that construction crews working on the drainage project can safely navigate their equipment around Entergy power lines.

It should last about three hours for the majority of customers, with the remaining customers back on by 3 p.m. as the work is completed in that area.

Entergy said its representatives reached out directly to affected customers in advance.
