Ross Clark Circle Road Widening Project
This project is an Alabama Department of Transportation project that will widen Ross Clark Circle from Bauman Drive to North Cherokee Ave. from four lanes to six lanes. There will also be intersection improvements made at West Main Street from N. Englewood Ave. to Bel Aire Drive (4 to 6 lanes) and at Montgomery Highway from Girard Ave. to Buyers Drive. This project will include incorporating ALDOT’s access management plan, signal upgrades, and access roads to shops and dining North of Meadowbrook Drive to the Montgomery Highway intersection.
Placement of the final wearing surface course continues along medians, turn lanes, and driveway turnouts. The final thermoplastic striping should be placed in the next few weeks. There will most likely be temporary lane closures and/or some narrowing of lanes during this work. Choctaw Street on both sides of the Ross Clark Circle is tentatively planned to be closed for paving beginning Tuesday, April 19, 2022. There will be no access onto the Ross Clark Circle from Choctaw Street during paving. Signal modifications will continue.
The roadwork was broken into three phases with the fourth phase including street lighting, sidewalk construction, and some other specialty work. Below is a timeline of the project.
