Enterprise updates public on four laning of Highway 167

Posted by: Daniel Curtis - bio | email

 

ENTERPRISE, AL (WSFA) – For years, officials in the wiregrass have been working to improve Highway 167.

 

Five years ago the City of Enterprise began their push to expand Highway 167 to four lanes from the Boll Weevil circle to Salem Road.

 

Tuesday city officials held a meeting to update the public on where that project stands.

 

"We are actually about to see property acquisition with the construction to start in 2011," says Mayor Kenneth Boswell.

 

The state will begin buying right of way along the road in the coming months and hope to have the process complete by next years.

 

"The next phase once we have identified the right of way is to appoint appraisers, the appraisers will come out and actually appraise the property so that we can make offers to the property owners we can't build a property without owning the property," said Don Vaughn, Chief engineer of the project.

 

Following the purchase of land officials hope to begin construction work in 2011.

 

"Once we go through the design process, the right of way acquisition process then we look into the utility relocation and construction which will be the next phase of the project, we should be able to start that in about a year from now," adds Vaughn.

 

City leaders estimate this first step of construction to cost close to $16 million.
