Shelby County Commission to listen to 280 traffic solutions

SHELBY COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - The Shelby County Commission is set to hear both sides of the Highway 280 argument.
     
The State Department of Transportation is pushing an $800-million elevated highway and toll road solution to the 280 traffic congestion. Business owners and residents are worried about the economic and visual impact of the elevated lanes.

The Shelby County Commission will hear from both ALDOT and an opposition group, Rethink 280. The meeting is scheduled for 5:00 on Monday evening.
