The City of Scottsboro was notified by the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) Thursday, February 9, that work on the intersection of US Highway 72 and County Park Road will begin on Tuesday, February 14 weather permitting.
We apologize for any inconvenience this will cause and ask for your patience as ALDOT works to improve safety and traffic flow at this intersection.
Traffic East and West bound on US Highway 72 will not be affected, however, the left turn to County Park Road East and West will be closed.
Traffic using both sides of County Park Road will be able to turn right onto US Highway 72 but will not be able to travel straight across the median of US Highway 72. The median will be closed for approximately 9-12 weeks.
This project comes from the Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program (ATRIP) Safety Grant that was awarded to Scottsboro. The purpose of the program is to rehabilitate and improve transportation infrastructure by funding projects of local interest, proposed by one or more local governments, related to the state-maintained highway system. Projects may include local roads and bridges essential to such projects.
The program’s goal is to address critical needs projects across the state to rehabilitate and improve the in-place facilities and in some cases provide new facilities at location throughout the state. The program’s focus is an emphasis on the public safety, economic growth and stability of the state and its roads and bridges.
Again, we apologize for any inconvenience.
