According to an HEA press release, the outage will begin at approximately 3 a.m. and last about 10 minutes. The outage is taking place in the early morning hours in order to minimize the impact on residential and business members.

■ Kenai Spur Highway from the Sterling Highway “Y” intersection to Knight Drive.
