The right lane of westbound Jensen Avenue between Highway 41 and Highway 99 in southwest Fresno will close from 10 a.m. Saturday until 1 a.m. Sunday for power line repairs, Pacific Gas and Electric said Friday. The repairs will also cause power outages for 73 customers.

Crews will repair or replace nine transmission poles along the north side of Jensen during the construction.

PG&E said that 50 customers will lose power for 15 minutes at the beginning and end of the repairs, and an additional 23 will lose power for the entire period. All affected customers have been notified.
