Fairhope Releases Status Report of Traffic & Pedestrian Safety and Capacity Improvement Projects

Post Date:09/30/2019

FAIRHOPE, Alabama – Fairhope Public Works Director Richard Johnson has released status updates for several traffic and pedestrian safety and capacity improvement projects within the City.

 The Eastern Shore Metropolitan Planning Organization (ESMPO) has funded the installation of left turn lanes on the east and west approaches of Gayfer Avenue with the intersection of Greeno Road (a.k.a. US Hwy 98). The work will include, but is not limited to grading, drainage, base and paving to widen both approaches to a three-lane section (proposed 11' lane widths) with a dedicated left-turn both north and south. In addition, signal heads and controls will be upgraded to accommodate the new turn lanes and function within the Adaptive ITS System. Design should commence late fall and construction midyear 2020.

Fairhope has submitted a grant application through Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program-II (ATRIPII) for new left turn lanes to County Road 44 (Twin Beech Road) at the intersection with Greeno Road (a.k.a. U.S. Highway 98) in Fairhope, AL. This would be a symmetrical widening for both the east and west bound approaches. The work will include, but is not limited to grading, drainage, base and paving to widen both approaches to a three-lane section (proposed 11' lane widths) with a dedicated left-turn both north and south.
