Wheelchair ramps being constructed along Highway 13

New wheelchair-friendly ramps are being constructed by the Alabama Department of Transportation at intersections along Highway 13 this week.

HALEYVILLE - Motorists along Highway 13 in Haleyville may have experienced slight delays in travel this week, but it's all for a very good cause.

The Alabama Department of Transportation is adding wheelchair accessible ramps to the main intersections along Highway 13 to help persons who utilize wheelchairs more safely access sidewalks when crossing the road.  Workers will be here several more days to finish the work, so expect possible delays and dusty conditions when traveling along Highway 13.

The project is on a state highway, so the work is solely being performed by the State of Alabama.
