Those who travel along St. Nicholas Avenue may be seeing a welcome sight this week.
Contractors who have been working with the Alabama Department of Transportation to upgrade a portion of Alabama Highway 41 have completed their work and are ready to open the section to public travel.
ALDOT workers said Tuesday they have finished the striping and are waiting for an inspector before the detour signs can be removed.
That was expected to take place sometime Tuesday afternoon, but had not occurred as of 5 p.m.
The project has been ongoing for several months on the portion of Alabama 41 on St. Nicholas Avenue from Rankin Street to Underwood Street. One portion of the roadway was dismantled and underground repairs completed with a second area being upgraded during the street closure.
Both sections involved in the project were repaved and restriped to AL DOT specifications.
Officials still have no timeline in place for the resurfacing of U.S. Highway 31 through Brewton. Belleville Avenue is also on the list for repaving within the city limits, however no date has been set for the beginning of that project.
