Highland Home, Ala. (PR) -- Beginning Monday, February 10, weather permitting, an Alabama Department of Transportation resurfacing project on Alabama Highway 97 from U.S. Highway 331 to the Montgomery County line, will begin.
The project will include shoulder widening, resurfacing, culvert extensions, guardrail installation, and traffic striping.
Motorists should expect delays and should be mindful of workers and equipment in the construction zone. A reduced speed limit will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.
ALDOT awarded the project to Wiregrass Construction Company, Inc., out of Dothan, who had the lowest bid that met project requirements, at a cost of approximately $2.4 million and is expected to be completed by the end of summer 2020.
ALDOT’s mission is to provide a safe, efficient, environmentally sound transportation network across Alabama.
