“If You See Something, Say Something!”

From the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security

It Takes a Community to Protect a Community

“If You See Something, Say Something™” is a national campaign that raises public awareness of the indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime, as well as the importance of reporting suspicious activity to state and local law enforcement.

Informed, alert communities play a critical role in keeping our nation safe. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is committed to strengthening hometown security by creating partnerships with state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) governments and the private sector, as well as the communities they serve. These partners help us reach the public across the nation by displaying the campaign’s messages and distributing outreach materials, including Public Service Announcements (PSAs).

We can all help keep our communities safe by paying attention to our surroundings and reporting suspicious activity to local law enforcement.

Road Closure – AL Hwy 14/Tallassee Hwy – Due to accident/power pole blocking Road

***6:45 a.m. UPDATE**  Hwy 14-Tallassee Hwy is now OPEN ***

***4:00 a.m. UPDATE***  Just notified that the crew moving the power pole and lines, DOES NOT EXPECT TO HAVE THE ROAD OPEN BY RUSH HOUR!  PLAN ON TAKING AN ALTERNATE ROUTE AND LEAVE EARLIER.

1/26/2020 at approximately 6:22 p.m., there was a motor vehicle accident on Hwy 14 (Tallassee Hwy) near Corn Creek.  A large concrete power pole and power lines are down blocking the entire roadway.

·       Hwy 14 Eastbound traffic is being diverted to Hwy 170 (Georgia Rd), then to Colley Rd. to intersect with Hwy 14 again.

·       Hwy 14 Westbound traffic is being diverted to Firetower Rd (County Rd 59).  Or, westbound traffic can take Colley Rd. to Hwy 170 (Georgia Rd).

Central Alabama Electric Coop is working to get the large power pole removed as quickly as possible.  We hope to have the pole removed before morning rush hour traffic.  Please monitor our website or social media page for updates.

Central Alabama Electric Coop is also working to restore power to as many customers as possible.  We refer you to their website or social media pages for updates on power restoration.
