Bridge Replacement Project Closes Part of Dallas Avenue in Selma


By George McDonald

From the West Alabama Newsroom--  A construction project to replace a bridge in Selma - will close-off part of one of the city's busiest streets -- for nearly a year.

The process of replacing the bridge over Valley Creek on Dallas Avenue is now underway. The project is expected to make getting around in the city a little less convenient for the next ten months.

Dallas Avenue is one of the three main east-west corridors in the city.

"People just got to understand that sometimes things happen in life that's going to inconvenience us but just look at the end result," said Selma resident Henry Moore, Jr.

Shelby McClain of Burnsville works at the Sandbar at the city marina in Selma.

"It's going to affect me, but I'm not going to let it affect me too bad," said McClain.

Landline Road and Highland Avenue will be used to re-route traffic while the project is underway.
