Fort Frances Power Corp. crews were busy today erecting a new hydro pole, and switching over power lines, after the old one on the southwest corner of Portage Avenue and Second Street Eaast was struck by a transport truck around 2 a.m. No power outages were reported but the traffic lights at that intersection are expected to be out through the weekend as repairs are made. Until they come back online, motorists must heed the four-way stop signs Public Works has posted there.
