UPDATES as of June 12, 2019:

The City of Opelika’s Public Works/ESG Department will be working on several road issues in the Northside neighborhood over the next few weeks. Please be aware of these projects. Avoid these areas if possible and use caution as you travel through these areas.

Corner of North 3rd Avenue and 9th Street

The manhole at the corner of North 3rd Avenue and 9th Street has deteriorated due to water and age, which has caused the road to break down. Crews began work the last week in May. Crews worked underground initially and will start back work in a week. There may be a short time that this intersection is closed completely. Once they commence work again, this project will take approximately a week to complete. Please be patient and cautious in this area.

4th Avenue between North 2nd Street and South 3rd Street

This road will be closed for 2-3 weeks while crews work to repair an underground pipe and redo the road surface. They began work on May 30, and will continue until the work is complete. Please follow detour signs and use North 2nd Street to Rockybrook/North 3rd Street. We understand this is a heavy traffic area and ask that you be patient while we restore this portion of the road.

Change at North 13th Street and 3rd Avenue

The intersection at North 13th Street and 3rd Avenue is now a three-way stop. This should help control traffic speed in that area. The city has put in signage to help make citizens aware.
