King and Union Streets in Selma Now One-Way Streets
By George McDonald


From the West Alabama Newsroom--  A major improvement project set to get underway this month on one of Selma's busiest streets - is already having a big impact on how people in the city get around.

The Alabama Department of Transportation will be replacing the bridge over Valley Creek on Dallas Avenue.

Mayor George Evans says the city has turned two streets into one-way streets -- to help ease congestion during the project.

"King Street will be a one-way from J-L Chestnut to Dallas and Union Street will be a one-way from Dallas to J-L Chestnut," said Evans.

The project will shut down one of the three main east-west corridors to through traffic for several months.

"If it going to just take some time to make the streets and the way people move around a little bit better, I'm all for it," said Selma resident Kristin Fells.

Evans says the city has three road improvement projects of it's own coming up -- but start dates for those projects have not been determined.
