Hartselle turn lane work to begin next week
HUNTSVILLE — An Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program project to improve intersections on U.S. 31 in Hartselle is anticipated to begin next week.
The nearly $2 million project will construct or improve turn lanes between Sparkman Street/Lane Road and Curry Street to improve traffic flow and safety. The project also includes construction of concrete medians and new roadway lighting.
The contractor, Wiregrass Construction, anticipates sign installation early in the week, with work to follow later in the week if weather permits.
Motorists are advised to expect single-lane closures and median closures at times during the project. Please plan additional travel time, reduce speed and drive with caution in the work zone.
The project is anticipated to be complete around the end of the year. This project was proposed by the City of Hartselle and is funded with state funds from ATRIP-II, which was created by the Rebuild Alabama Act.
The city covered the costs of preliminary engineering and utility relocation.
