UPDATED: 9:20 p.m.

According to TEP, the intersection of North Shannon and West Ina roads will remain closed through the weekend after powerful thunderstorm winds blew down or damaged at least 14 power poles in the area Friday afternoon.

TEP field crews will work through the weekend to remove damaged equipment and to work on repairs.

This work will require the closure of Ina road between North Camino De La Tierra and North Mona Lisa Road.

TEP expects some traffic restrictions will remain in place for about a week until repair work is completed.

At least 4,800 customers were left without power as a result of the storm, which damaged about two dozen power poles throughout the Tucson area.

About 550 customers remain without service at this time.

TEP anticipates service will be restored to most customers by tomorrow morning.
