July 25, 2015 (El Cajon)--A combination of several factors caused an electrical power outage in El Cajon Friday evening beginning around 6:20 p.m.

Power was out for at least 3 businesses, and traffic lights at several intersections. These included north Magnolia Ave. & west Park Ave. and north Magnolia Ave. & Wisconsin Ave.

After a number of hours, physical STOP signs were temporarily put in place for traffic control at the intersection of north Magnolia Ave. & west Park Ave.

Power to these intersections remains out on Saturday morning and SDG&E estimates repairs should be completed around 12:00 noon.

CTE is performing the actual hands on traffic light re-set as power is being restored.
