Dearborn — Power has been restored in Dearborn and Dearborn Heights after being out for nearly three-and-a-half hours due to repairs being done at a local substation.  

Several areas of Dearborn and Dearborn Heights lost power about 3:40 p.m. Friday, knocking out traffic lights and slowing traffic on Telegraph Road from Ford Road to Wilson Avenue, authorities said. Traffic lights also went out on Wilson from Telegraph to Outer Drive, Dearborn Fire Department dispatcher James Fitzgerald said.

Power was restored at 6:59 p.m., according to DTE Energy.

The power outages resulted from repairs being made to a transformer at a substation in Dearborn Heights, DTE Energy spokeswoman Beth Crick said.
