Former Guide Plant Site

1-20 & Millhaven Road, Monroe, LA 71203


Located in the City of Monroe in Ouachita Parish, this 182.2 acre site was the location of the former Guide Plant, a General Motors automotive headlamp manufacturing facility. The building has been demolished and cleared, leaving a ready site with utilites and convenient access to I-20 Millhaven Exit. This industrial site also has access to Class 1 rail, Kansas City Southern, and the KCS rail spur can be reinstalled.   

The former Guide Site is currently undergoing certification as a Louisiana Economic Development (LED) Certified Site. A Phase 1 Environmental, geotechnical, cultural resource, and other studies will be conducted on the property to ensure that once the site is certified, it will be shovel-ready.
