MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Madison County officials are looking at widening Jeff Road from Capshaw Road to Highway 53.

The purpose of the project is to improve traffic flow and decrease congestion in that area.

An informal meeting was held Thursday at the Monrovia Community Center.

Residents had an opportunity to review the plans.

"Right now, it's a gridlock at quitting time. Just stopped at a red light, there's 100 cars deep, they can't get them out of the area fast enough, so this will relieve all of that," said resident Paul Mulleck.

The county plans to submit an application for funding approval to the Alabama Department of Transportation by the end of the month.
