HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Huntsville Utilities wants you to be aware that several road projects could affect your travel times Wednesday and Thursday.

Weather permitting, a number of projects that will affect traffic patterns in several locations around Huntsville starting very early  Wednesday morning.

  • In southwest Huntsville, around 2:00 a.m. Wednesday morning, crews will close the two northbound lanes of Triana Boulevard between Bob Wallace Avenue and 10th Avenue to repair a gas line. Northbound traffic will be diverted into the inside southbound lane, leaving one lane open in each direction until repairs are complete. Crews anticipate normal traffic patterns to be restored before 6:00 a.m.
  • In northwest Huntsville, beginning around 8:30 a.m., crews will divert eastbound traffic on Mastin Lake Road into the center turn-lane near the intersection of Mastin Lake Road and Inglewood Drive (between Memorial Parkway and Blue Spring Road) to replace a water service line. Crews anticipate completion before 2:00 p.m..
  • In northeast Huntsville, at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday evening, crews will close two lanes (one in each direction) on Pratt Avenue to install water service lines between Andrew Jackson Way and Meridian Street, leaving one westbound and one eastbound lane open for passing traffic. No estimate on completion is available.
  • In northwest Huntsville, around 8:00 p.m. Wednesday evening, crews will merge passing traffic on Wynn Drive just north of Old Madison Pike for water main extension work in that area. Crews plan on having the work complete before 5:00 a.m. Thursday morning.
  • In southeast Huntsville, around 8:00 a.m. Thursday morning, crews will close access to Todd Mill Road between Cannstatt Drive and Arolen Drive to install gas service lines. Crews plan to have the work completed and the road re-opened by 1:00 p.m. Thursday afternoon.
