On Tuesday, Governor Kay Ivey and the Alabama Department of Transportation announced the City of Opelika (Lee County) will be receiving $1,328,687.23 in funding for Exit 62 improvements. 

The goal of this project is to ultimately improve access along Columbus Parkway (US-280/US-431) at I-85 (EXIT 62) from Fox Run Parkway to North Uniroyal Road. The improvements will include signal upgrades, access management modifications and the addition of a left turn lane on Columbus Parkway. 

“We’re thankful for the funding we have been granted to improve Exit 62. These future improvements will greatly enhance the safety of this very busy intersection,” said Mayor Gary Fuller. 

More than $45 million in funding is being awarded and divided between cities and counties for 27 various road and bridge projects. The projects were selected by the ATRIP-II Committee created by the Rebuild Alabama Act.  

It is anticipated that a number of projects will be under contract during the 2021 fiscal year, however all projects are required to move forward within two years of the awarding of funds. The City of Opelika will inform locals before the Exit 62 project begins.

 For more information, please call Opelika Engineering Department at 334-705-5451.
