Frederick Road Construction Picking Up

July 1, 2013

The City of Opelika has been notified that beginning on Tuesday, July 9th , the Frederick Road contractor will temporarily “divert” traffic onto two new segments of two-lane roadway that were recently built beside the existing roadway so construction crews can replace drainage pipes under the existing roadway.

Those two new roadway segments are:
1) between Skyway Drive and Bradford Drive
2) between Cunningham Drive and Corporate Park Drive

             The replacement process may take several months to complete and, at times, will cause traffic to proceed slowly in those two areas.  The City encourages drivers to either take alternate parallel routes, such as Pepperell Parkway or Interstate 85, or allow “extra time” in getting to business locations in these areas.  All drivers on Frederick Road are asked to approach the diversion areas with caution and to obey all temporary traffic signs.
