I noticed today that County Line/Railroad Bed Road and US 72 is being prepped for improvements, which includes more turning lanes and fixing about 257 potholes.

Will that be as far south as the freeway will go or are there plans for another phase to start soon?

I think the city plans to start preliminary work on extending it further south once the current project is complete.

The project coming up after the overpasses is a large access-management project, which presumably will make the parkway south of Weatherly more like US 280 in the Birmingham area.

--- Quote from: AL.com ---Memorial Parkway construction in Huntsville completed ... almost

OK, south Huntsville, your long driving nightmare is almost over.

The Alabama Department of Transportation said Wednesday that a ribbon cutting for the two new Memorial Parkway overpasses will take place next week.

That doesn't necessarily signify the $53.9 million project will be complete by the July 31 ceremony. But as ALDOT spokesman Seth Burkett described it, "it certainly signifies that the project is nearing completion."

The work began in 2015 to build overpasses at Byrd Spring Road and Lily Flagg Road as well as reconstruct the Martin Road overpass to improve traffic flow in south Huntsville.

The Martin Road project had a late 2017 target date for completion and the overpasses in the summer of 2019. Both projects were completed early, which will mean about $2.5 million in bonuses for contractors Reed Construction and Miller & Miller.

Gov. Kay Ivey is scheduled to attend the ribbon cutting as well as Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle and other state and local officials, according to ALDOT.

Completion of the project has been evident for several weeks as construction has dialed down on the overpasses, clean-up work has been taking place and paving is currently underway.

The completed overpasses will provide traffic light-free travel on the parkway from south of Mastin Lake Road in north Huntsville to south of Weatherly Drive in south Huntsville.

An overpass at Mastin Lake Road is next on the $250 million project list funded evenly by ALDOT and the city of Huntsville.

When a local road project gets stalled out for an extremely long period of time, despite the next phase practically being ready to begin, you can't expect the locals not to have any fun!
(P.S. Read the reviews, lol.)

I drove that road once...accidentally. I noticed the new "bike trail" beside it & wondered what the deal was with that.
