ALDOT Awaiting Community Input for I-280 Toll Plan
Thu June 03, 2010 - Southeast Edition Construction Equipment Guide
COLUMBIANA, Ala. (AP) Alabama Department of Transportation officials said plans for a toll road along U.S. 280 are on hold until communities make it plain how they feel about the project.
Engineer Brian Davis told elected leaders and business people in Shelby County on May 5 that several communities have passed resolutions urging ALDOT to keep working on plans to improve 280 without being specific.
He said the city of Homewood is against the plan the department has proposed.
Davis said with the $800 million price tag, officials in Montgomery want to know what kind of support there is before giving a go-ahead.
Birmingham officials said they’d like to see an alternative to the plan for toll roads and an elevated highway from I-459 in Jefferson County to Eagle Point in Shelby County.
