Simms says it’s about time the Alabama Department of Transportation started widening 181. The car clogged, two lane road will soon become a major, four lane highway, connecting Interestate Ten to Highway 98.
But not everyone is excited about the widening project. Many homeowners who live on 181 say the new road will be just a little too close for comfort.
The 125 million dollar widening project will take about six years to finish.
