(WKRG) — The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) anticipates beginning the fifth SR-158 extension project, constructing an interchange on Wilmer-Georgetown Road over what will be the future U.S. 98 lanes beginning Tuesday, June 1.
The project scope of work includes grading, paving, bridge, and drainage work as crews will construct an overpass over US-98 and provide a ramp connection from Wilmer-Georgetown Road onto U.S. 98.
Wilmer-Georgetown Road will be closed to motorists between Danner Drive and Thompson Road while the overpass is constructed. Drivers will use Glenwood Road to bypass the work zone.
The $7.6 million-dollar contract was awarded to HCL Contractors and is anticipated to be completed by winter 2022.
