The city of Birmingham approved an initial $3.6 million to begin road work in September.

Birmingham’s 99 neighborhoods, split into 9 districts, each one with roads on the list to be repaved as part of Mayor Randall Woodfin’s neighborhood revitalization program.

“The Mayor has heard the residents say, ‘we want our roads repaved,’” said Birmingham Communications Director, Rick Journey.

Journey sent this list of locations crews will begin working on in September.

“So many potholes. It just a lot of areas that need to be replaced or fixed. Definitely repaving this road would be good for us,” said a driver.
