Plans for expanding Ross Clark Circle were approved by the Dothan City Commission Tuesday.
Commissioners approved improvements from Fortner street to Bauman drive.
The improvements will turn that section of road into 6-lanes, including turning lanes.
"Anytime you can add lanes and make improvements along there, you obviously can move traffic better in that small corridor, " said Assistant Public Works Director, Charles Metzger.
Officials say they hope to begin construction on the project in November.
