Beginning Monday, Hudson Road north of Old Moulton Road Southwest will be closed for realignment work for about seven weeks, according to District 1 Commissioner Jeff Clark.

He said Pleasant Hill Road will be lined up with Lamon Road to eliminate a bad angle for motorists along Hudson. Also, the county will align Hudson and Modaus roads at the four-way stop at Old Moulton Road during the project, he said.

The entire project is expected to cost about $700,000. Clark said many Lawrence County and Trinity commuters travel Hudson Road daily.

“We waited for schools to be out for the summer before doing this phase,” Clark said. “We are urging motorists to avoid the entire area this summer.”

"We waited for schools to be out for the summer before doing this phase” - I was wondering why they were waiting so long. The dirt they dug up earlier for the drainage has trees growing through them. This is a much needed fix. Won't be long before they put a traffic light up there.
