Manitoba Hydro is continuing major upgrades to the electrical distribution infrastructure in Brandon's west end this fall.
As this work is conducted, customers may experience power outages lasting up to three hours from September to mid-November. Customers may also experience periodic road and lane closures.
In a release, Manitoba Hydro states it requires these outages to safely upgrade the primary distribution system's voltage from 4,000 volts to 12,000 volts. This upgrade will allow Hydro to meet increasing customer demand for electricity in Brandon's west end.
Manitoba Hydro has properly paid out $169 million in compensation to First Nations communities negatively affected by the Keeyask mega-project but should improve how it verifies those claims, an audit says.
"We were satisfied that Hydro was diligent with properly administering the process costs claims in a manner consistent with its reimbursement policy," said Manitoba Auditor General Norm Ricard.

The chief of the Berens River First Nation is raising concern over the Manitoba government's decision to hand out termination notices to all 80 employees of the East Side Road Authority. Chief Hartley Everett says he and other indigenous leaders want assurances from the Conservative government of Premier Brian Pallister that an all-weather road on the east side of Lake Winnipeg will go ahead.
He says they also want to know that local residents will be hired to help build that road.
Manitoba Hydro is following the policies it has established for paying and monitoring process and adverse effects costs related to Keeyask Generating Station construction, the auditor general has found, but those policies could be improved to ensure compliance.
Contractors, home builders and suppliers say a spike in drywall prices across the prairies will mean a hike in construction costs.
The federal government imposed an anti-dumping tariff of up to 276 per cent on gypsum board products being imported from the United States.
Canada Border Services said the fees were imposed to offset dumping after a complaint was filed in April. The first to feel the hit are people like Harry Loewen, owner of one of the city's largest drywall contractors.
He said businesses that operate under fixed-priced contracts will feel the impact immediately.
