GENEVA COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) – The Alabama Department of Transportation opened public comment Saturday on a proposed project to widen a portion of State Route 52 to four lanes in Geneva County.
As part of the state’s effort to rebuild Alabama, ALDOT has proposed additional lanes on Alabama Highway 52 in Geneva County from East Cox Street in Slocomb to Scott Road in Malvern.
Governor Kay Ivey announced earlier this year a plan to four-lane Highway 52 during her State of the State address.
According to project information from ALDOT, the widening would be divided into two segments.
“The first segment will consist of building two additional lanes parallel to the current two lanes from East Cox Street in Slocomb to CountyRoad-73. The second segment will create a new four-lane highway just north of the current two-lane from County Road-73 to Scott Street in Malvern”
The public is asked to provide comments about the project at: www.aldotinvolved.com. People may also leave a voicemail message on the project by calling 334-807-8785. Comments may also be sent electronically to AL52-Comments@dot.state.al.us.
All public comments on the project should be completed by June 1, 2021.
