The City of Monroe Engineering Department and Parks and Recreation Department, in conjunction with North Carolina Department of Transportation, will be sweeping U.S. Highway 74 (Roosevelt Boulevard) during the weeks of March 31 and April 6. During street sweeping operations, temporary lane closures will occur during the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Drivers are reminded to take precautions around street-sweeping equipment. The City recommends motorists leave at least three car lengths between their vehicle and a street sweeper. Keeping a safe distance can also prevent damage to vehicles from debris that might come from the street sweeper during the cleaning process. Motorists are encouraged to avoid the area during the sweeping of U.S. 74 and to take alternate routes if possible.

Questions regarding this work can be directed to the City of Monroe Street Division at (704) 282-4667.
