BPU crews still working to restore power to parts of Jamestown's eastside, and Falconer...

Jamestown Board of Public Utilities' crews were still trying to restore power to parts of Jamestown's eastside... and, the industrial corridor... after a possible power surge that tripped off a transformer in Falconer.  The problem apparently triggered flames that damaged one side of the Rand Machine Company.  There were reports of a couple of sounds -- like explosions -- that occured in the area about 9:15 Monday night... but, BPU Spokeswoman Becky Robbins says crews are still trying to determine what happened.  Robbins adds that the problem also turned off the Cassadaga and Buffalo Street pump stations... so water has been discolored water through-out the city and Falconer areas.  The first problem occured about 3:45 p.m. Monday... when an underground cable fault triggered an outage on the city's eastside... and, the industrial corridor.  Robbins adds a water main break and valve replacement occurred later in the day in the area of Bush School, near English, Sanford and Pardee Streets. 


Miller says Regal Services is requesting new traffic light at intersection of Fairmount and Jackson Avenues in West Ellicott...

A parts supplier for Cummins Engine Company's heavy-duty engine plant in Ashville is requesting a traffic light on Fairmount Avenue at Jackson Avenue in West Ellicott.  The request by Regal Services went before the Ellicott Town Board Monday night.  Town Supervisor Cecil Miller says Regal moved into the former Quality Markets warehouse on Jackson Avenue a short time ago... and, he says their trucks have had some diffculty getting onto... or off the busy five-lane highway.  Miller says they have a lot of truck traffic going to and coming from Cummins, and Interstate 86... and, they've been having trouble at times with no traffic light.  However... since Fairmount Avenue is also State Route 394... the request must go to the New York State Department of Transporation.  Miller says county Department of Public Facilities Director George Spanos has agreed to take their request to the state for consideration.  There is a light east of Jackson at Dunham Avenue... and another to the east at the Fairmount Avenue entrance to the Wegman's Plaza.
