There are several street projects that could impact drivers as we approach the first day of school for students in the Elmore County Public School System (Monday, August 4th).
Millbrook Middle/Junior High School Entrance/Exit
A new entrance/exit for passenger cars is set to begin paving this week. This could mean backups or delays on Chapman Road. Paving is scheduled to take 5-6 working days and the contractor anticipates the project will be completed by August 1st.
SEHS Entrance/Hampton Oaks Drive
Demolition and preparation for paving has already begun and paving is scheduled to begin this week on Hampton Oaks Drive, the road that connects the Stanhope Elmore HS campus with Main Street. This project is expected to be completed by August 1st.
Coosada Elementary School recreation area
While not a road project, resurfacing at Coosada Elementary School is expected to begin this week and be completed by July 26. This resurfacing project is made possible by a grant. Outgoing Principal Suzanne Goodin applied for the grant last year.
According to Fred Watts, President of the Millbrook City Council, Paving on Rose Hill Road is scheduled to start on Monday, July 28th, and take about 4-5 working days with a completion date of August 1st. this project was funded as part of Govenor Bentley's ATRIP program. Drivers who use Rose Hill Road might want to plan an alternate route or allow for extra time during this time frame.
Work is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 28th and with paving/resurfacing scheduled to begin on Monday, August 4th. The project is expected to take about 14 work days and the target completion date is of August 21st.
"Traffic controls will be strictly enforced especially during the hours of school traffic. You might want to plan an alternate route during this time frame if possible, especially the drivers that do not live on or off Myrick Road," Watts said.
