This will cause a power outage to all receptacle outlets, computers, lighting, air handling units, supply fans, exhaust fans, fume hoods, motors, etc. throughout each building.

This shut off is required to allow for the reroute of primary electrical feeder circuit connections for the COP Lozier Drug Discovery Building utilities improvements currently under construction.
