Houston County Road & Bridge crews are working to improve the crosswalk corner at Oates Street and Main Street in Dothan.
Hundreds of people use the crosswalk every week on their way to court dates and appointments, but an unexpected step down had raised safety concerns.
Workers are removing the hazard by raising the pavement, making it level with the existing sidewalk there. They are also creating a new flume for the flow of water.
Half of the parking lot across from the courthouse is currently closed for the construction. The project is expected to be complete within the next week.
