West Main Street among highway projects announced by governor

Montgomery (WTVY)-- An additional lane will be added to West Main Street in Dothan as part of a $2 million state highway project. The widening will be between Flowers Chapel Road and John D. Odom Road.

Construction funds will come from gasoline taxes lawmakers approved in March. The six cents a gallon increase is being phased in over three years.

“An investment in our roads and bridges is an investment in the future of Alabama,” Governor Ivey said in announcing several projects, including the one in Dothan.

“I am proud to see projects resulting from the Rebuild Alabama Act already getting off the ground. Soon, every Alabama citizen will feel the benefits from this additional investment in our infrastructure.”

Geneva County will receive $670,000 to add left turn lanes on Alabama Highway 52 and improve turning radius onto County Road 69 at the intersection of highways 52 and 69.

Coffee County will receive $1.6 plus $180,000 in matching funds. That money will be used to improve County Road and County Road 114.

The release from Ivey’s office did not include a timetable for construction to begin.
