TRUSSVILLE — A section of Floyd Bradford Road being repaired after culverts failed in February will be closed once again for approximately five weeks.
Jefferson County Commissioner Joe Knight said the closure should be the last and that the new road should be completed by the end of the five weeks.
Birmingham Water Works crews will first have to move two water lines so the project can be finished. The closure will begin on Monday, Aug. 10.
The part of the roadway that has been closed is near Smith Sims Road.
The culverts under the roadway allow the waters of Stinking Creek to flow into the Cahaba River. Knight said the county was already planning to construct a new section of roadway that would straighten the road and move the bridge further downstream when the culverts failed in February. The section of the roadway has been open since June when crews were able to make a temporary fix.
