Online Public Involvement for Columbus Parkway Access Improvements

Project Overview

Location: Opelika (Lee County)

In Person Meeting: October 12, 2021

Thank you for visiting our website.
ALDOT in cooperation with the City of Opelika is proposing to improve access management on Columbus Parkway at the I-85 interchange (Exit 62). The project length is approximately 1 mile along US-280 between Fox Run Parkway to North Uniroyal Road and involves driveway closures as well as the addition of turning lanes.
The major purpose of this project is to provide access management features, which will accommodate not only current traffic, but also, future traffic demands more efficiently and safely.
Please see the project information map and video below.
