DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) - Safety issues along Highway 231 have Houston county leaders taking action. The number of cars on Highway 231 has gone increased due to the opening of Country Crossing in Dothan.

Houston county authorities are asking the Department of Transportation to place signs along the highway warning of potential traffic congestions.

The state is in charge of maintaining Highway 231, county leaders say they would consider paying for new safety signs if the state does not.
