The first steps in a $6 million project to improve Madison Boulevard

MADISON, Ala. (WAFF) – Madison City leaders are taking the first steps to improve one of the busiest roads in the city.

City council members voted to choose who will oversee road improvements on Madison Avenue at Monday night’s city council meeting.

The design process is managed by Morrell Engineering. The cost of the design phase will not exceed $279,774.

The Madison Boulevard Rehabilitation and Safety Improvement Project is funded by the Department of Engineering budget with $5,000,000 from the Federal Highway Administration and $1,250,000 from the city.

The Alabama Department of Transportation, we will work in partnership with the city to make sure it meets the Federal Highway Administration guidelines.

Council President Rena Bartlett believes the entire city will benefit from the project.

“Of course, we want Madison Boulevard to be safe for travel. We want it restored. This is a major highway for the city of Madison. Along Madison Avenue and toward Madison Township, there is a lot of commercial development,” Bartlett said.

The construction date of the project is not yet known.
