MLGW crews are preparing to begin emergency repairs to reinforce an electric duct line in downtown Memphis. Traffic on South Second Street will be reduced to one lane between Beale Street and Dr. M.L.K. Jr. Avenue. One lane of Lt. George W Lee Avenue will also be closed near South Second Street and The Westin hotel.
MLGW and contractor equipment will be on site beginning Thursday afternoon; repairs will begin Friday morning. Work is expected to continue through next Wednesday, Nov. 25. Drivers should expect heavier traffic in this area as a result, especially during events at the nearby FedEx Forum.
