Third Service Reliability Project Set for Conroe Customers

Motorists Urged to Drive Cautiously in Work Areas

Conroe, Texas – Contract crews working for Entergy Texas, Inc. are keeping their focus on Conroe with two 2015 projects down and a third underway.

Crews began work last week on a power line originating from the Lacon Substation on Longstreet Road.  The nearly 35 mile-long power line serves 913 customers in an area north of Longstreet Road from Highway 75 to Shepard Hill Road.

Workers will be close to roadways during the two-month project, so customers are urged to be alert drive cautiously in those areas.

While crews will be in highly-visible bucket trucks, customers can expect to see specialized equipment in the area, plus crews working manually to remove vegetation.

Entergy Texas invests about $7 million per year in its vegetation management program, trimming an average of 2,000 line miles annually.

Entergy Texas, Inc. provides electricity to more than 426,000 customers in 27 counties. It is a subsidiary of Entergy Corporation. Entergy is an integrated energy company engaged primarily in electric power production and retail distribution operations. Entergy owns and operates power plants with approximately 30,000 megawatts of electric generating capacity, including nearly 10,000 megawatts of nuclear power, making it one of the nation’s leading nuclear generators. Entergy delivers electricity to 2.8 million utility customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
