The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) has started construction on U.S. Hwy. 72 between County Line Rd. and Nance Rd. This project spans 3.43 miles and includes resurfacing of the roadway as well as numerous crossovers and turn lanes. Construction will be underway between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Sunday evenings through Friday mornings and is expected to last approximately 2 months. One eastbound and one westbound lane will be closed each night.
Speeding fines will be doubled within the construction zone when workers are present. Please use caution in this area and take an alternate route if possible.
