MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Vaughn Road in east Montgomery is about to get a facelift. Repaving will begin Monday along a 4.5 mile stretch that runs from Taylor Road to Chantilly Parkway. Montgomery county officials estimate about 30,000 cars travel that portion of Vaughn Road every day.
The bulk of the work will be done overnight, between 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., so effects on traffic movement should be minimal. Drivers still need to be prepared for minor delays, drive slow within the construction zone, and be mindful of equipment and workers in the area.
It’s a $4 million dollar project that was originally initiated by the county in 2012. City and County partnered together using ATRIP (Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program) Funding to complete the project. This is part of the 50 miles of repaving being done throughout the county. In all, 17 roads will be resurfaced. It’s Montgomery County’s first road project of its kind since 2005.
The work is expected to take until May to complete.
