Blown transformer closes road, causes power outage

UPDATE – The Consumers Energy outage map is showing that the outage has ended.

WALKER, Mich. — More than 1,700 people are without power Tuesday night and an intersection shut down after a power line fell across the road.

Kent County Dispatch says a transformer on a utility pole blew, causing a power line to fall near where 3 Mile and Alpine Ave intersect, shutting it down as crews clean it up.

According to the Consumer’s Energy outage map, power can be expected to be restored around 11 p.m.
