TALLADEGA COUNTY — Commuters who travel on Alabama 21 north of Sylacauga can expect roadwork beginning next week and continuing through the next three months.

Tim Burns with the construction department of the Alabama Department of Transportation office in Alexander City, said eight-and-a-half miles of the highway will be resurfaced. The work has been planned from the Country Club Road intersection in Sylacauga to the Winterboro area.

“They are putting up signs there this week and probably get started next week,” Burns said. “On that project, I think there are 85 working days (expected).”

He said traffic control will be handled along the road on a daily basis. Warning signs marking 1,500 feet outside of the work area have already been placed, as well as orange markers throughout the area of the highway that will be affected.

Burns said there will also be signage to notify drivers when there are lane closings. Similar roadwork was recently completed by ALDOT along Alabama 21 in the Sycamore area.
