The power company said that it would cut service this morning at 8:30 a.m. to a section of San Jose’s downtown.
The area is between Avenida 6 to the south and Avenida 3 to the north between calles 11 and 15.
The area includes the Universidad San Marcos, the Biblioteca Nacional, Sleep Inn, Casino Colonial, Manolitos, the Defensoria Públicas of the Poder Judicial, the Hotel Flor de Lys and Hotel Asia, said the Compañía Nacional de Fuerza y Luz.
Power is expected to be restored by 4:30 p.m. The reason is preventative maintenance of the underground electrical distribution system, the company said.
The company also said that crews would be moving utility poles in Tibás on the east side of Bodegas Parque Condal and that this would lead to some outages including one at Banco Popular.
