MLGW gas crews will begin working on a nine-month construction and maintenance project in various sections of Midtown and East Memphis.
Drivers should be aware that some curb lanes may be closed to traffic at different phases of the project during the next nine months. Construction crews will start Tuesday, April 6, setting up equipment and traffic control barrels.
Drivers should slow down during these active work zones and be alert to traffic barriers and MLGW workers. Work will be done within the boundaries of the following areas:
· McLean Boulevard, Poplar to York Avenue
· Warrington, Leven and Marston Roads (includes Clearbrook, Leven, Warrington and Clearbrook Coves)
· Mandale, Dove and Basket Streets (includes Noble and Busby Avenues and Busby Cove)
· Blackwell, Virgil and Ruskin Roads (includes Keats and Sienna Roads, Anita Avenue and Chaucer Lane)
· Waynoka/Magnolia, Goodlett to Rose Road
Work crews are either replacing the existing gas pipes to improve the gas flow in the area or replacing the service connection to the gas pipe in the street. The upgrade means greater reliability. MLGW will work as quickly and safely as possible to minimize any inconvenience to residents.
MLGW is the largest three-service public power utility in the nation, serving more than 429,000 customers in Memphis and Shelby County.
