WEIRTON — Officials with MonPower have announced about 1,400 residents of the Marland Heights area will be without power between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Wednesday while crews begin work to rebuild structures along a transmission line near Hamilton Road.

He said the outage had been announced, through automated calls to customers, for Monday but was delayed by the weather.

He said future short outages could occur as the project continues and will be announced.
