Severe Traffic on Mt. Hermon Road Due to Power Outage

Significant delays are expected until at least 7 p.m. SVPD says.

A power outage that occurred late Thursday afternoon is causing severe traffic delays on Mt. Hermon Road. Scotts Valley Police say significant delays are expected until at least 7 p.m.

According to SVPD, the outage was due to a blown transformer near CVS and was widespread, taking out power along Mt. Hermon Road, Scotts Valley Drive and Glen Canyon, among other areas.

As of 4:30 p.m. most of the power has been restored except for along Mt. Hermon Road where the stop lights in front of CVS and Kmart where still out, leaving traffic backed up to Highway 17.

PG&E is currently working to correct the problem.
