UPDATE on Sept. 19, 2019: The contractor finished work on Thursday and no road closure will be needed on Friday, Sept. 20. The lane will still be closed on Monday for one to two weeks. 

Due to work associated with ALDOT's Canal Road widening project, there will be a single-​lane closure from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, Sept. 19-20, and then for up to two weeks beginning on Monday, Sept. 23. 

The lane that will be closed is the northerly westbound Canal Road lane between Ace Hardware and Cosmo's Restaurant. 

Beginning on Monday, Sept. 23, the single lane will be closed for 24 hours a day until a safety wedge is constructed along the edge of pavement. It is anticipated that this lane closure will be in place one to two weeks depending on utility relocation progress.

Also beginning on Monday, Sept. 23, the contractor will be removing the paved shoulder and existing driveway culverts and installing new drainage pipe within the lane closure limits.
