The City of Monroe Construction Division will conduct a water main replacement along W. Franklin Street between N. Charlotte Avenue to Stewart Street starting on or around Monday, September 18, and anticipated to conclude by Wednesday, October 25.

The improvement will be replacing approximately 270 linear feet of existing 4-inch cast iron water main, and will enhance water service to customers in this area.

Temporary road closures may be necessary within the project limits with the exception to local residents and businesses. Emergency service vehicle access will be provided at all times. Normal collection of garbage and residential/commercial deliveries will be provided access.

There may be a short term interruption to water service during construction of the new water main, and the Water Resources Department will make every effort to notify customers in advance. 

All damaged/disturbed items will be restored or replaced at the end of the project.

We apologize in advance for any inconveniences experienced during our construction.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call the City of Monroe Water Resources Department at (704) 282-4601.
