Streets Remain Closed, Power Out in Wilmington

Crews are working to on Tuesday morning to fix the damage left behind by Hurricane Sandy.

Clean up from Monday’s damaging hurricane continues into Tuesday as many residents remain without power and several roads are still closed.

According to the Wilmington Police Department, Shawsheen Ave. at the Billerica line will remain closed through early evening Tuesday, possibly remaining shut down into Wednesday due to Hurricane Sandy.

That area remains closed after a massive pine tree was brought down by high winds, bringing down six utility poles with it before landing on a passing truck.

But Route 129 isn’t the only closure. Salem Street is also closed at Ring Ave. and Butters Row was closed as of 9:15 a.m.

Reading Municipal Light Department still has plenty of work to ahead, with a long list of streets still in the dark.

According to RMLD Engineering and Operations Manager Kevin Sullivan, the morning daylight will increase power restoration efforts.

“Customers should be aware that in some cases, the power may be out for several days,” said Sullivan, echoing the update shared on Monday night.

I believe all of Shawsheen Commons is in the dark, not just Pouliot Place.
