If you've traveled down Summerville Road over the last two weeks, you've noticed more traffic than usual.
That's because Third Avenue, now called Whitewater Avenue, has been partially closed as it undergoes major construction. The road that a lot of people use to bypass Summerville has been closed since July 6.
Phenix City Mayor Eddie Lowe wouldn't say exactly when they expect the road to open because weather can always change that projection, but he did say it's going to be "gorgeous."
"The end result is going to be magnificent for the city of Phenix City," he said.
Never miss a local story.
Whitewater Avenue is the location of the city's new parking garage that includes more than 200 spaces. It is being completed as well as the new Troy University building and Courtyard Marriott.
