Work underway with detour at Uphapee Creek


The Alabama Department of Transportation has begun replacing a culvert on Alabama Highway 49 at the tributary of Uphapee Creek in Franklin.

While the culvert is being replaced a signed detour will be in place. 

ALDOT awarded the project to McDonald Construction Co., Inc., out of Union Springs, Ala., at a cost of $881,884.  The project is expected to be complete in Summer 2020.

ALDOT’s mission is to provide a safe, efficient, environmentally sound transportation network across Alabama.
