Current Maintenance / Planned Outages

Holly Ridge Area Maintenance

In our continuing effort to improve system reliability, the cooperative’s line construction contractor, FX5, will be performing routine maintenance in the vicinity of Preskitt Road, Hlavek Road and more specifically in the Holly Ridge Subdivision area west of Decatur. This project is expected to last approximately 2 weeks beginning April 25th and will consist of, but not be limited to, routine line maintenance and right-of-way clearing. You will likely experience FX5 trucks on or near your property. You may also encounter employees on your property and likely knocking on doors to let you know they are working in your area. You are also likely to experience short outages depending on the nature of the work to be done but an attempt should be made to notify you in that case. Thank you in advance for your patience and as always, if you have questions or concerns, please contact our office.

Cuba Road Upgrade

In the cooperative’s continuing effort to provide reliable service to our members, our contract construction company, FX5 Construction, will be working in the area near Cuba Road south to Highway 114 for approximately the next 6-8 weeks.  The exact route of the job begins on Cuba Rd. and continues south on CR 3225 for approximately 2 miles to the intersection with CR 3332.  The project will turn east on CR 3332 for 3/10 mile to CR 3241 then turn south and continue approximately ¾ mile to the intersection with Highway 114.  FX5 crews will be changing poles and replacing overhead conductor .  For the timeframe specified, members in the area may experience FX5 employees and vehicles on or near their land.  Some members may also experience short outages but employees are required to  communicate to members if these short outages are necessary.  This particular project will require a large amount of vehicles so roads may be somewhat blocked.  Please exercise caution when driving in the area of these employees and vehicles.  The cooperative would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office.

Bridgeport Upgrade

The cooperative has contracted Power Engineers out of Fort Worth to perform initial phases of an electric line upgrade project in the areas to the east and south of Bridgeport.  The project begins at the intersection of Cuba Road and CR 3225 and continues south to CR 3332.  The project will turn east to CR 3241 and then south on CR 3241 to Hwy 114.  The project will cross 114 and continue south on CR 3341 to the intersection of CR 3342.

You may encounter the Power Engineers employee on or near your land in a vehicle that will be clearly marked with WEC signage.  He should also be able to provide an ID card issued by the cooperative at your request.  This portion of the project will likely involve two weeks of work by this employee and then at a time to be decided after that, the construction crew will be assigned to perform the work of upgrading the electric distribution lines.
