Lights out back on in Sturtevant

All the lights in Sturtevant went out Wednesday night around 9 p.m. Initial reports are a blown transformer. The power outage affected street lights, store signs and even traffic signals, which made for some hectic driving through the village. It affected most properties between Highway 31 and I-94 in Sturtevant and Mount Pleasant.

Update 10:27 p.m.: Lights are back on.


  1. Crazy driving thru there!

  2. Or they got the date of Earth Day wrong.

  3. The railroad crossing signals were out as well -- at least the ones on Braun Rd. Amtrak and three freight trains made it through safely, though.
