Transportation Projects – Decatur, Alabama

Transportation Projects Updates, April 22:

The East Moulton Street resurfacing project is going to start soon.  This project will result in improved handicapped accessibility downtown as most of the sidewalk ramps will be repaired and improved, and we will have a much improved driving surface.  The milling and resurfacing will start April 30, 2017 and be done at night between 6:00 PM and 6:00 AM Sundays thru Thursdays.  The contractor on this project will be working diligently to provide a safe travel surface during the day while the project goes on.  The concrete work on the ramps may start prior to April 30 and impact the pedestrian way.  We realize that this project is going through a high traffic area and have worked around the holidays and other events downtown.  We need to get it started and hope to finish quickly.  As with many projects in our historic areas there are sometimes surprises from the development standards of years gone by.  We do not anticipate any problems or hold ups, and look forward to a greatly improved travel way for vehicles and all pedestrians very soon.
