Good evening from the desk of Jonathan Hardison! I hope you're having a nice evening and here are some of the stories we're working on for you tonight.

Traffic help

Here’s the most rhetorical question possible in Birmingham but I’ll ask it anyway as a setup here: Are you sick of heavy traffic on Highway 280? OK, are you willing to use some of your tax money to study the idea of expanding Grants Mill Road as a 280 alternative? That’s the question facing Hoover’s leaders tonight and John Huddleston is reporting from their meeting tonight on WBRC FOX6 News at 9 right after the premieres of Gotham and Minority Report.

Charges dropped
 
And new on WBRC FOX6 News at 10 our Josh Gauntt is learning that the dropping of charges against a Brookwood High School teacher accused of sexual relations with a student may actually just be a legal maneuver that doesn’t mean the case is falling through. In fact, the teacher’s attorney tonight says this is an unfair tactic that’s making it hard on his client.

Those stories and more beginning at 9 on WBRC FOX6 News. I hope you'll watch us on air, online at WBRC.com or in the WBRC News app by clicking "Live Newscasts."
