MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala. (WHNT) - The signs go on for miles and so does the construction. The expansion of Wilson Dam Road has been in the works for almost two years. Residents say that’s too long.

Kyle Conner has been living up the street from the road for one of those two years. He says the construction is aggravating, especially in the mornings.

"It takes about five to ten minutes for me to get on the road," said Conner.

The Department of Transportation says the project is going to cost the state 11.6 million dollars. A lack of utilities outstretched the project, but the state says it will be done by the fall.

"It's kind of a pain, you know. All in all, if they can get it done I think it would be great," said Conner.

The new Wilson Dam Road will have two lanes north, two lanes south and a center turn lane.

    It would have been completed long ago had it not been for greedy, selfish property owners blocking it in an attempt to get more money out of the public. How easily we forget.
