ALDOT Public Meeting

ALDOT held a public meeting about the Mentone Bridge on Tuesday, May 16th, 2006, at the Moon Lake Elementary School Gym.  Representatives from ALDOT were available to answer questions about their plans for Project BR-0204(512) for replacement of the bridge over the West Fork of Little River in Mentone.

An engineering drawing depicting ALDOT's plans for a 55 mph expressway was presented.  The central part of this drawing is shown below.  The existing bridge will become part of Skyline Camp.  The new bridge, on downstream side of the existing bridge, will be substantially larger.  All of the trees and structures on the downstream side of the road will be removed and replaced with a rip-rap lined drainage ditch.
