Improvements coming to Alabama Highway 14 in Elmore


Elmore Co., Ala.-  The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) through a cooperative effort with CSX Railroad  will be advancing a construction project on a section of Alabama Highway 14 in Elmore, AL. The upcoming widening project of Alabama Highway 14 will begin at the intersection of Coosada Parkway and end at the intersection of the unpaved portion of Lucky Town Road.

Senator Clyde Chambliss said “This project has resulted from the hard work of many state and local government officials. In a time where improvement projects are hard to come by, the cooperative efforts of the business community along with state and local government are the reason this project is possible. I am thankful to see this much needed project advance.”

This project is a continuation of the effort by state and local government to make Alabama Highway 14 a four lane corridor from Millbrook to Wetumpka driven by state and local government.  

Elmore County Commissioner Joe Faulk said “This project will have a lasting impact on Elmore County and be a catalyst for transformation and growth in this county. The Elmore County Commission thanks ALDOT and the municipalities in Elmore County for their continued support for improvements to this critical corridor.”

The project includes two bridge replacements at Mortar Creek and the CSX Railroad, as well as improvements to the intersection of Alabama Highway 14 and Alabama Highway 143.

“This project has been years in the making, and I want to thank all involved for their efforts to bring this project to fruition. We are looking forward to the project being in place so the citizens of Elmore County can benefit from a safer, less congested commute each day” stated Elmore County Commissioner Stephanie Daniels Smoke.

Mayor Margaret White added “The Town of Elmore is excited for this project to move forward. We have been waiting a long time to get these needed improvements in place.”

ALDOT will begin advertising the project on July 13 for bids which will be accepted on July 29.  
ALDOT’s mission is to provide a safe, efficient, environmentally sound transportation network across Alabama.  For further information, visit www.dot.state.al.us.
