JACKSON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) -- Through the winter months ATRIP projects in Jackson County were put on hold, and now the county is looking to start up again.
"We've been on seasonal limitations, basically we're not able to pave during the winter time so we've had to wait on that," County engineer Philip Widner says.
Now Widner says the county is hoping to start on the next three projects in the next few weeks. County officials say they were hoping for this week, but the rain caused a hold up. "We're hoping to start on County Road 67 next week," Widner says.
After that, two more projects are scheduled in different areas of the county. "County Road 43, it goes from Section to the DeKalb County line, and then the other one is County Road 5. It's out west of Scottsboro on 72, and it goes over to the Marshall County line," Widner says.
Jackson County has nine ATRIP projects total, some of which are for paving and some are for bridges. County leaders say with the start of these next three projects, there's an end in sight.
The plans for the roads are in part widening if needed and striping. The three projects are expected to be done in the next few months.
