As Huntsville gets more crowded and more vehicles occupy our roads, the commute to and from work can get hectic. Add foot and bicycle traffic to that, and we know that roads need to be safer in the Rocket City.

Well, one particular road project might ease the commute for a bunch of Huntsville drivers. Check this out:

The $4.7 million North Huntsville project

Last week, The Huntsville City Council authorized Mayor Tommy Battle to enter into an agreement with low bidder Grayson Carter & Son Contracting Inc. to make improvements to Monroe Road from Pulaski Pike to 1 mile east of Liberty Hill Road.

“The project is intended to improve safety with the installation of paved shoulders and improved sight distance along this roadway. The contractor will soon begin utility relocation and improvements should be complete in September 2023.”

Kathy Martin, Huntsville’s Director of Engineering

City officials said the project was necessary as traffic patterns continue to increase near the North Huntsville Industrial Park.

How the project will affect traffic

Because the affected portion of Monroe Road will be closed for construction for about four months, a detour will redirect motorists to Patterson Lane.

Project updates will be posted to the city’s website as information is available.
