Semmes Construction Projects

 The City of Semmes currently has 3 construction projects in progress around the Moffett/McCrary intersection.  Two of them are sidewalk projects which are 80% funded by the state and federal government with Transportation Alternative money.  The purpose of the project is to encourage cities to become more walkable, which will help reduce traffic.  The locations in Semmes were chosen due to their proximity to the parks, post office, pharmacies, retail, and banks.  The City hopes to continue pursuing these type grants so that the sidewalks can be extended to other areas of the City.

 The third project is an intersection improvement of Moffett/McCrary/Wulff by widening the intersection, adding a right turn lane on Moffett to McCrary, and shifting the center turn lanes so that they are off-set.  These improvements will help relieve congestion and increase visibility which will improve overall safety.  The City partnered with the Alabama Department of Transportation in an effort to address the traffic and safety concerns that resulted from traffic studies and historical data gathered over the last 5-10 years.  This project will begin in December and should be finished by April.

 We ask that the citizens be careful and drive safely during the construction process.  Infrastructure construction can be bothersome to drivers and citizens but the benefits of these projects will be worth the sacrifice.

 If you have questions or concerns, please call the Public Works Department at 649-5752.
