Power has now been restored to an area in east Grand Junction that was affected by a transformer outage just before 5 a.m.

The outage caused traffic signals in the area from 28 to 30 Road along the I-70 Business Loop, North Avenue, and D Road to go out.

Grand Junction Police were dispatched to the scene to direct traffic, and Xcel Energy crews worked to restore power.

Police remind motorists to treat any intersection without a working traffic signal as a four way stop.
