The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) began construction on another segment of the SR-158 extension projects on Friday, December 7.
The project encompasses 2.7 miles, starting east of Glenwood Road to west of SR-217 (Lott Rd.) in Semmes. The project involves grading, drainage, and pavement as well as constructing bridges over Collins Creek and McCrary Road.
The $26.8 million contract was awarded to H.O Weaver and Sons, Inc. and is expected to be complete by the fall of 2021.
This State Route 158 extension project is one of seven projects to complete the two-lane facility from the Mississippi State Line to Schillinger Road. This project is being funded with 100% percent state funds from legislation stemming from the state’s BP Settlement.
