More plans unveiled for new Hoover development

Trace Crossings development

HOOVER, AL (WBRC) - More plans are being unveiled for the new Stadium Trace Village in Hoover.

The city announced on Facebook that Taco Mama, O’Henry’s Coffee, and Melt will all open locations at the new development.

“We’re very excited to see some of the interesting brands that are going to be coming to western Hoover. A lot of demand for that kind of dining on our end of town,” said Allan Rice, Hoover City Administrator.

However, new dining is not the only benefit Rice sees.

“That will help expand some of the employment options on the western side of town as well,” Rice said.

One issue that has been a problem and will continue to be as the area grows is traffic on Stadium Trace Parkway and Highway 150. City leaders say they’ve budgeted money to look at options.

“Residents and visitors can expect the city real soon to begin developing a plan on how to get another ingress and egress out of the Hoover Met Complex to alleviate traffic for our visitors and our residents,” said John Lyda, Hoover City Council.

The developer is also doing what it can.

“Specifically, the developer of Stadium Trace Village has invested $2 million in additional lanes and signalized intersections and additional traffic control intersections,” said Lyda.
