MARLOW — If you’re curious as to why the lights went out in parts of Marlow on Thursday night, it was a planned blackout.

The city of Marlow shut off power to parts of the town at 11 p.m. Thursday until about 1 a.m. Friday  to move power lines for the new electrical substation, the police said.

The outage affected the central part of town from Apache Avenue to Chickasaw Avenue.

Marlow Police Chief Jimmy Williams said the planned power outage lasted less than two hours.
