About 2,043 Tideland members in Fairfield and Englehard will be without power for a while early Thursday morning.

A Tideland EMC official says a planned outage will begin at 11:59 Wednesday night, when the co-op will shut off power to its Mattamuskett substation.

For about three hours, crews will reframe transmission line structures to provide safe working clearance for state D.O.T. contractors working on a Hyde County bridge.

Tideland expects power to be restored by 3:00 a.m. Thursday.
