The Elmore County Commission was recently awarded a safety grant for roadway improvements to Burt Mill Road just west of Tallassee. The Commission will install paved shoulders, make guardrail improvements, and install new stripe and markings. The project was identified in the Elmore County Local Road Safety Plan, a comprehensive plan designed to improve roadway safety through coordinating engineering, education, enforcement, and emergency service efforts. The grant will provide total improvements of $265, 618, with the county providing a 10% match. Questions related to these improvements can be directed to the Elmore County Highway Department at 334-567-1162 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
