A brief power outage in Mountain View this morning left thousands of PG&E customers without power, including the Mountain View Caltrain station.
The outage affected 3,165 customers, in areas mostly north of Central Expressway between Highway 85 and San Antonio Road, according to PG&E spokeswoman Monica Tell. Power went out around 11:27 a.m., and was fully restored by 11:53 a.m.
Tell said a contractor doing work for PG&E on Evelyn Avenue had "impacted the line" for PG&E, causing the outage.
The power outage caused lights on Castro Street to go out. Lights and ticket machines at the Mountain View Caltrain station were also affected by the outage, according to Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn.
