The contractor has shifted traffic to the two new lanes in this area – the northbound lanes between Martin Rd. and Edgewater Dr. and to the north half of Martin Road from Gate 7 to Belmont Hills Apartments. This has allowed the contractor to begin raising the Edgewater Dr. intersection’s new finished grade to tie in traffic to the new northbound lanes. Edgewater intersection will be closed for approximately 3 weeks, weather permitting, with a detour to use Nature’s Way during this time.
Crews are working to complete the signal, paving, concrete and landscaping work on the north end of the project limits. The contractor continues working to have the Madison Blvd. intersection and four lanes of Zierdt Road between Madison Blvd. and Mountainbrook complete and open to full traffic as soon as possible. Crews are also working on Martin Rd. west of Zierdt following the traffic shift on Zierdt Road. They will complete the south side of Martin Road first, shift traffic to the south and then complete the north side of Martin Road towards the intersection. This provides a safe transition to the new intersection for this section of Martin Road.
Crews are also currently working to demolish and reconstruct the existing southbound lanes of Zierdt Road south to Martin Road to include new drainage, curb, subgrade, paving and multiuse path for the remainder of the project duration.
The projected completion for the entire project is the Fall of 2021, weather permitting.
