Community meeting Tuesday on Grants Mill Road bridge

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A community town hall meeting will be held Tuesday to discuss the Grants Mill Road bridge project and other issues.

State Senator Slade Blackwell, in a statement on his Facebook page, said the meeting will be held Tuesday night at Liberty Crossings United Methodist Church on Sicard Hollow Road at 7 p.m.

In a news release to FOX6 News, Blackwell said the meeting will be the first in a series of meetings to discuss efforts to rebuild the bridge on Grants Mill Road at Lake Purdy.

"This has been a headache for people in this area for over a year, causing significant delays for the people living in the community's surrounding the bridge that depend on it to reach Highway 119 and Highway 280," Blackwell said in the statement. "While there has been some progress with this project, people want to know the timeline and other details, which I hope to provide to them."

Blackwell said the ongoing Jefferson County sewer debt crisis and other issues would also be discussed.
