PROGRESS IN HELENA!
Yes, you know the feeling! That first reaction when we see those dreaded orange and white barrel markers lined up on the road that marks the beginning of a slow down in traffic flow and in some cases long waits to get past the work in progress!
But when you paint a picture of the end result and realize that sometimes you have to be inconvenienced a little bit for nicer things to come it is easier to plan your drive to include a little more time to reach your destination. And that is what we will have in Helena, Alabama when the new Helena pedestrian tunnel opens under County Road 52!
This $9.9 million project under construction by Shelby County and U.S. Steel includes a parkway and pedestrian tunnel that will connect the walking trails from Hillsboro Subdivision to the new Helena Middle School.
This 100 foot long tunnel will allow pedestrians to safely cross under the busy road when using the 12 foot wide trails that will offer a natural treelined setting.
Helena is very proud of the progress of this project as the new tunnel has been placed and the vision is starting to take shape!
This is just one of the many exciting projects on the drawing board for this great city! Helena, Alabama is a wonderful place to live! This kind of growth improves the environment of our daily lives in the areas where we live and play.
