Months Of Traffic Delays Come To An End On Highway 29 In Century

April 30, 2010


Work is nearly complete a $480,159 drainage project on Highway 29 in Century, and all four lanes of traffic are once again flowing without interruption for the first time in seven months.

Improvements consisted of installing box culverts, replacing existing sidewalks in the area, and resurfacing a stretch of the highway. Motorists have experienced intermittent lane shifts and restrictions since the start of the project in September, 2009.

Contractor Coastal Materials is continuing to work on minor portions of the project, located on Highway 29 between Jackson and Cottage streets, just south of the Alabama state line.
