COFFEE CO., Ala. (WDHN)—By early next week, work will get underway in the “repaving” of
Coffee County Road 147 in Northern Coffee County’s “old” Tabernacle Community.

The road falls within the county’s second commission district and commissioner
“Kim Ellis,” says it’s been more than 60 years since the route has been repaved.

It is often used as a “shortcut” to Wayne Farm’s poultry plant in Coffee County’s
New Hope community.

Work is expected to get underway next Monday or Tuesday. The 350-thousand dollar
job is being paid for through “The Alabama Rebuild Act” funded through the additional
gas tax passed by the state legislature several years ago.

Coffee County road and bridge personnel are asking for drivers to be
cautious when driving through the construction zone on 147 next week.
