Florala, Ala. (WDHN)—Fifth Avenue is the main roadway through Downtown Florala. Its retail and municipal buildings were designed and built in the horse and buggy era of the
Late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Several years ago, Michael Scroggins returned to his hometown and purchased several of the brownstones.
He says speeders and continuous traffic has caused a loss of structural integrity.
Scroggins says he hopes city and state officials will address the problem in order to rehabilitate one of the “oldest” cities in Alabama.
Scroggins says traffic vibrations, as well as the loud roar of mostly truck engines, have led to cracked downtown windows.
