WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Duke Energy crews are not sure what caused the power to go out for almost 5,000 customers in West Lafayette and Tippecanoe County Monday night. Spokeswoman Angeline Proteger said a mobile substation which was already in place because of infrastructure upgrades failed for an unknown reason. But crews were able to re-energize the substation and restore power to everyone.

Shortly after 5 p.m., West Lafayette Police Department said there were multiple traffic signal outages. They asked motorists to avoid Sagamore Parkway.

West Lafayette Police Department had officers at Sagamore Parkway and Yeager Road, as well as officers at Morehouse Road, U.S. 231 and Klondike Road.

Officers were guiding traffic at most intersections, but also want drivers to treat any traffic light that’s out as a four-way stop.
