Wednesday, April 27, 2016


The Alabama Department of Transportation will begin an estimated million dollar project to improve traffic flow along Pelham Road for drivers on Jacksonville’s main highway. The department opened bids for a contractor to install metal posts for new technologically enhanced signals. According to Jacksonville City Administrator Jarrod Simmons, 80% of the project’s cost will be funded by the Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program, with 10% being covered by the city. Simmons says, the Department of Transportation will cover the remaining 10% and the city estimates the project to cost between $1 million and $1.3 million. The project will also bring new pedestrian crossing signals at intersections of Francis Street, Mountain Street, University Circle and Alabama 204.
