FPL: Power restored on stretch of Lincoln Road


A power outage along several blocks of Lincoln Road lasted several hours Saturday, affecting about a dozen businesses along the popular pedestrian mall that runs between Alton Road and Washington Avenue.

Power went out about 2:20 p.m. and was fully restored by 8:20 p.m., said Emily Pantelides, a Florida Power & Light spokeswoman.

“It was an issue with a transformer and we replaced it,” Pantelides told the Miami Herald.

Twelve customers were affected by the power outage, she said.
