Church Street Phase I

Posted on August 9, 2018


This project will widen and realign approximately one mile of Church Street from a two-lane road into 5 and 4 lanes, with bike lanes and sidewalks, beginning at Monroe Street in downtown Huntsville and continuing north to Pratt Avenue at Hundley Street. The Church Street project will also realign Pratt Avenue to straighten out the “S” curve. Sidewalks are included in this road project, designed to enhance and improve this major roadway into the downtown area.

The contractor will have periodic road closures along Church Street between Monroe Street and Wheeler Avenue during the next three months as work progresses along Church Street. Road closures may occur for days or weeks depending on the work needed.


Reed Contracting began work in November 2018 and is anticipated to be complete by late 2020.

The next closure is anticipated to occur in August between Monroe Street to Wheeler Avenue. All business will remain accessible during road closures.

Please refer to traffic control signs on site and to the map in Project Photos below for alternate routes within the area. Visit the Road Alerts section for current traffic patterns that may impact daily commutes.
