MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - After more than three years of taking detours and alternate routes, drivers in Marshall County will be able to travel on Aldridge Gap Road, next Monday.

A ribbon cutting for its reopening will be held at 9:00 Monday.

Repair work began on the roadway back in March of this year.

A Christmas Day flood in 2015 caused a portion of the road to fall off the side of the mountain.

The road would have been repaired before now, but officials needed clearances from area property owners to begin work because repairs required literally moving the road.

With Monday’s reopening, the project will be completed almost two months ahead of schedule.

Back in March, Marshall County Commissioner District #1, Ronny Shumate told area residents the road would be repaired by July 1 of this year.
