Traffic Advisory for Highway 431
The Alabama Department of Transportation’s contractor plans to start placing a barrier wall in order to shift traffic into a contraflow on US 431. All southbound traffic has been moved into the outside lane and will be shifted approximately 4 feet to the outside. The northbound roadway will be put into the inside lane, then will be moved to the southbound inside lane using the crossovers from Whiteside Avenue to north of West 45th Street. All southbound roadway traffic will be moved to the outside southbound lane in this area and the travel lanes will be separated by a concrete barrier wall. This means there will be no left turns possible in this area. Detours will be as follows: Sprague Avenue detour will be Glade Road to 49th Street East to Bellvue Avenue back to Sprague Avenue. The entire shift is scheduled to be completed Monday or Tuesday. The traffic shift is to allow the tie in work for the Anniston Eastern Bypass to US 431 to be done on the east side.
