The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) anticipates beginning the fifth SR-158 extension project, constructing an interchange on Wilmer-Georgetown Rd over what will be the future US-98 lanes beginning Thursday, May 27 2021.

Wilmer-Georgetown Rd. will be closed to motorists between Danner Dr. and Thompson Rd while the overpass is constructed. Drivers will use Glenwood Rd. to bypass the work zone.
The $7.6 million-dollar contract was awarded to HCL Contractors and is anticipated to be completed by Winter 2022.
