Church Street bridge replacement and partial road closure to begin May 28

Posted on May 14, 2019

Weather permitting, beginning Tuesday, May 28, contractors will close a short segment of Church Street, south of Wheeler Avenue and north of Cleveland Avenue, for a period of three months to continue with the new bridge construction across Pinhook Creek.

Wheeler Avenue and Cleveland Avenue will remain open and accessible from Church Street to local traffic throughout the bridge closure. Jefferson Street and Monroe Street will also remain open as the detour route during this closure.

Church Street is expected to re-open by the end of August, and is part of the [http://%20https/www.huntsvilleal.gov/roadworkprojects/church-street-phase-i/]Church Street Phase 1 Road Improvement project. The City is widening and realigning Church Street and Pratt Avenue from a two lane road into four and five lanes, to include bike lanes and sidewalks, beginning at Monroe Street in downtown Huntsville and continuing north to Pratt Avenue at Hundley Street.

Traffic Control measures and detours will be in place. Motorists are highly encouraged to be aware of traffic control signage and to take alternate routes during peak travel times to avoid congestion.
