W Road To Be Temporarily Closed For 10-12 Weeks

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger on Tuesday announced the temporary closing of the W Road.

The public is advised that the W Road is expected to be closed for 10-12 weeks. 

The Hamilton County Public Work Department has closely monitored the road, and as recently as last week, completed roadway surface crack filling and asphalt overlay repairs in an area of concern.  The sudden development of significant roadway cracks after last week’s maintenance, possibly due to geological shifts below the roadway, has prompted the County to close the road and initiate emergency repairs. 

Hamilton County Public Works Administrator Todd Leamon says this will allow for an expedited process to secure immediate and specialized engineering design, as well as any required repair measures, to stabilize the roadway.

The patience and cooperation of Hamilton County residents is appreciated.

Roy Exum: Saban: ‘Ratings Don’t Matter’

When the first College Football Playoff rankings were released earlier this week, Alabama football coach Nick Saban got it right on the button when he shrugged, “I don't even care, to be honest with you." "To me, none of it matters, What does it matter?” he laughed at the Tide’s No. 6 ranking. “I mean, it only matters where you end up at the end. So what matters to us is how ... (click for more)
