Intersection of Donahue Drive and Glenn Avenue to Close Wednesday

AUBURN, Ala. - The intersection of Donahue Drive and Glenn Avenue will be closed on Wednesday, April 9 beginning at 9 a.m. CDT while Alabama Power Company crews begin the process of relocating power poles along Donahue Drive.

Company officials have agreed to begin work after the morning rush in an effort to assist with traffic during the morning commute. The intersection is expected to re-open Wednesday afternoon by 5 p.m. CDT.

The work is associated with the Alabama Highway 14 realignment, which includes widening Donahue Drive from Glenn Avenue to Bragg Avenue and re-routing Martin Luther King Jr Drive to align with Bragg Avenue. Improvements will also be made at the intersection of Glenn Avenue and Donahue Drive to add protected left turn movements.

Citizens are encouraged to visit the City of Auburn's website at www.auburnalabama.org to view the latest news on street closings so they may adjust their routes accordingly.
