HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Drivers with business on the Arsenal can rejoice. Martin Road is about to get a major upgrade. The artery to Gate 7 will be going from two lanes to four soon.

The Huntsville City Council approved the project Thursday night. The city of Huntsville will handle the cost of the project between Rideout and Zeirdt roads.

State ATRIP funding will cover the cost from Zeirdt to the airport.

 

"Together, we're going to make a better entrance to the western side of the Arsenal that's Gate 7 right there at Zeirdt and Martin. It's a better entrance to the Arsenal, it takes pressure off Gate 9 which is almost over capacity, so it makes a lot of sense transportation wise to do that," said Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle.

No word yet on when the widening project will begin.
