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.
