Road project begins

A plan to resurface, traffic restripe and rail bridges on Highway 31 from Lacon to Main Street in Hartselle began Mon., Aug. 21.

There will a contracted amount of 7.8 miles of roadwork from Lacon Road to Main Street done by Good Hope Contracting for $2,834,685.77.

According to ALDOT Public Information Officer Seth Burkett, the contractor has been patching the road and the official milling will begin on August 21, if weather permits, on the south part of the project.

Work will be conducted from about 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The part of the project involving the area of Thompson Road to Alabama Highway 36 in Hartselle will be night-time work, beginning around 6 p.m. and concluding before 6 a.m., to limit disruptions to/from traffic.

During milling and paving operations, single-lane closures will be in place during those working hours.

“Motorists are advised to expect delays or take an alternate route, such as Interstate 65, to bypass the work,” Burkett said. “The project area includes four bridges, three of which will have their guardrails improved. The retrofit concrete work will be conducted in the daytime. We anticipate completion this winter.”
