COUNTY COMMISSION APPROVES COUNTY ROAD 140 REPAIRS
By WVUA 23 Web Writer Sarah Rumfelt
The Tuscaloosa County Commission has approved funding to repave County Road 140.
Tuscaloosa County Commissioner Reginald Murray said he is pleased that the commission green-lit the nearly $3 million project. The state of Alabama is funding $2.5 million and the remaining $400,000 for the project will come from the county’s budget.
Murrary said residents have been patiently waiting for the resurfacing, which will improve driving conditions along parts of County Road 140.
“It starts below the solid waste area in the Coker town area and goes all the way to the Pickens County line,” Murrary said. “If you had a bridge out or something like that, or a wreck on a bridge, you can travel at least 5 or 6 miles and avoid that particular congestion.”
There is not timeline for the construction project yet.
