REHOBETH, Ala. (WDHN) — A portion of South Park Avenue in Rehobeth was shut down for approximately six months after being damaged to excessive amounts of rain causing flooding.
Houston County Commissioner Ricky Herring said the process was lengthy due to getting the funds from FEMA as well as making sure the road was fixed the right way to prevent another overflow.
Herring said he’s glad to see the road open after the brief inconvenience.
“This county and others have been very patient with this project, and I appreciate them being patient, and I appreciate the road and bridge department for their hard work and FEMA and everybody else,” he said. “It’s great to be able to work together and get this project done.”
Work will continue on the surface of the road, but it will remain open.
Meanwhile, Middleton Road is nearing completion.
