Paving of the final wearing surface is complete at the intersection of Madison Boulevard, along Shelton Road and Zierdt Road south to Mountain Brook Boulevard. All lanes of traffic are open at the Madison Boulevard intersection and all four lanes of Zierdt Road are open from Madison Boulevard to south Mountain Brook Boulevard. The permanent striping and pavement reflectors are completed for this area, and the Mountain Brook Subdivision traffic signal has been removed.
Work continues to reconstruct the southbound lanes of Zierdt Road from Edgewater Drive to Martin Road to include new drainage, curb, subgrade, paving and a multiuse path. Traffic has been shifted to the outside lanes along Zierdt in both the northbound and southbound directions. Crews are working in the median to finish the rest of the curb and pour channelizing islands at each crossroad. Work in this area is about 85% complete. Crews have completed all drainage and grading work and sod is continues to be placed as areas are completed. The final layer of asphalt will be placed once the remaining concrete work is completed.
Crews continue to work on Martin Road at the Zierdt Road intersection. Traffic has been shifted to the middle of the road so sidewalks and grading can be completed behind the curb. Traffic will then be shifted to the outside lanes so the concrete median islands can be poured on the west side of the intersection. The final asphalt layer will be placed once all concrete work is complete.
Huntsville Utilities has installed streetlights along Zierdt Road between Asbury Woods and Redstone Square. Design is completed and materials have been ordered to finish lighting the remainder of Zierdt Road from Madison Boulevard to Martin Road and Martin Road from Zierdt Road to Old Jim Williams Road The lights will be installed when the material arrives.
The projected completion for the entire project is fall 2021, weather permitting.
