Highway 74 Monroe Closure: Essential Updates

In an effort to keep the residents and commuters informed, we’re bringing you the latest on the Highway 74 Monroe closure and the associated power outage that has been scheduled. This update is crucial for anyone navigating through Monroe or living in the impacted areas.

Understanding the Closure

The City of Monroe’s Electric Division has announced a significant operation that will see a single lane on W. Highway 74 temporarily closed. This is part of a broader effort to enhance the city’s electrical infrastructure. The outside, westbound lane of Highway 74, stretching from Fowler Secrest Road past Secrest Price Road, will be closed from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Adequate traffic control measures, including signage and personnel, will be in place to guide commuters during this period.

Power Outage Notification

Alongside the lane closure, a Monroe power outage has been planned, affecting specifically the Redwood Living and Woodlands Creek subdivisions. This outage, scheduled from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m., is necessary for the safe installation of electric cables and equipment. The Energy Services Department will notify all 213 impacted customers in advance, ensuring everyone is prepared.

Project Goals and Timeline

The primary aim of these disruptions is to reroute existing primary electric cables to serve the new Yardley (BTR) development efficiently. This project is not only about improving energy supply but also about paving the way for future growth in Monroe. Completion is targeted by 4:00 p.m. on February 13, ensuring a swift return to normalcy for affected residents and drivers.
