MLGW to close lane on Union Avenue until late September

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Light, Gas, and Water (MLGW) closed the southern-most east-bound lane of Union Avenue west of Midtown I-240 to east of North Bellevue Boulevard.

The lane is expected to be closed though Sept. 29, as maintenance work takes place daily from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

MLGW will perform underground electrical installation for Methodist University Hospital.

The closure, which will also affect an additional east-bound lane closing on Union Avenue and the north-bound lanes of Bellevue, will not prevent emergency access to the hospital or the emergency room.
