ENTERPRISE, Ala (WDHN)— Parts of roadways in northwest Enterprise will soon be closed due to construction related to the new Veterans Home.

A portion of Hickman Road and Dozier Road, just off State Road 51, will be closed as approved by the Enterprise City Council.

The closures will occur on or about September 26. It is expected the closure will last three months, but officials are not sure.

Barricades will be put on both sides of the roads, along with signs to alert drivers to the closures.

It is possible the temporary closures could expand in the future, but right now, these are roads that need to close for safety reasons associated with the Veterans Home project

The public is reminded to be aware of their surroundings and watch for work crews.

The Command Sergeant Major Bennie Adkins Veterans Home will be the fifth veterans home in the state. The long-term, state-of-the-art facility will house 175 residents and is expected to open in 2023.
