Portion of Montgomery’s Court Street to be revamped

Funding approved for Court Street project

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - After years of roadblocks and cutting through red tape, Montgomery city leaders are planning to have work done on Court Street.

At Tuesday’s city council meeting, leaders voted on funding that will coincide with a federal grant from the Alabama Department of Transportation. The federal grant will cover 80 percent of the costs.

The project is expected to be a major re-modeling of Court Street from Fairview Avenue to the Boulevard.

“The work of new curbs and gutters and sidewalks and then the last thing that will happen will be the asphalt placement. New signalization, all of the signals come through with the new mast arms. It’s about a $7 million project,” Mayor Todd Strange said.

Leaders hope to have a contractor in place in late May so work can begin.
