Street Improvement Projects Could Mean a Frustrating Summer in Selma


By George McDonald

From the West Alabama Newsroom--  Four road improvement projects set to get underway in Selma this summer could make for a frustrating summer for some motorists -- and businesses in the city.

The projects are on two of the city's three main east-west corridors-- and two north-south corridors often used to connect to those two main roads.

Crescent Hill Drive will be closed for two months to have a drainage problem fixed.  Cahaba Road and Medical Center Parkway will be repaved. And the Alabama Department of Transportation is also planning to replace the bridge over Valley creek on Dallas Avenue this summer.

City Councilman Cecil Williamson says scheduling of the projects will determine how long residents will have to deal with the inconvenience.

"It is going to be very inconvenient for a few months and we need to make the people aware of it, so that they'll at least be aware of it before it does happen," said Williamson.

Landline Road and Highland Avenue will be used to re-route traffic while the projects are underway.
