Work begins on Alabama Highway 14 in Elmore
Elmore Co., Ala.- The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) widening project of Alabama Highway 14 from the intersection of Coosada Parkway to the intersection of the unpaved portion of Lucky Town Road began this morning.
At this time work will be done off of the roadway. When crews do need to enter the roadway there will be lane closures. However, there will be no lane closures from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. or 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
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.
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.
Construction was originally planned to start next year but through a cooperative effort with CSX Railroad, the project was advanced.
ALDOT awarded the $16.9 million contract to W.S. Newell and Sons, Inc. and Newell and Bush, Inc. out of Montgomery, who had the lowest bid that met project requirements. The contract allows for 425 working days.
ALDOT’s mission is to provide a safe, efficient, environmentally sound transportation network across Alabama. For further information, visit www.dot.state.al.us.
