From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — A part of Valley Road in Trussville will close on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020, for emergency repairs.
Mayor Buddy Choat said recent weather caused a slope failure and the slope must be repaired. The city will have to dig part of the slope and put in around 4,400 tons of riprap rocks to stabilize the slope.
There will be heavy equipment brought in, so Choat said the road will be closed from Linden Street to the Pinnacle. Linden Street will remain open.
“I wanted to keep it to one lane,” said Choat. “But I didn’t feel comfortable with all that equipment there. Plus, we are hoping the work will get done a lot quicker with no traffic on the road.”
The roadway has not been damaged and Mayor Choat does not expect any damage to the road.
The road will close at 1 p.m. Tuesday and will remain closed until crews complete the work. It could take several days.
