TRUSSVILLE — The resurfacing of Deerfoot Parkway from Interstate 59 to Old Springville Road was set to be completed this week.
The Trussville City Council last July approved a resolution for the work, but at no cost to the city.
The resurfacing was to include the alignment, profile, grades, typical sections and paving layouts.
The resolution granted the Alabama Department of Transportation the full use of and access to the street for the construction of the project and permitted ALDOT to close and barricade the project and intersecting streets for as long as necessary while it’s being graded, drained, paved and otherwise improved.
According to the resolution, the Alabama Department of Transportation now or later may be “desirous” of receiving federal aid for improvement of Deerfoot Parkway. The Federal Highway Administration won’t participate in any funding for the construction of the project until and unless the city agrees to certain requirements of the FHA in regard to its funding of improvements of the type and kind in the agreement.
The city of Trussville further agreed to perform all maintenance on crossroads that aren’t designated federal or state highways and on grade separations along the roadway.
