Denton Road Widening Project

Project Description 

This project will widen Denton Road from two lanes to five lanes and will tie to the previously widened bridge project on both ends. The entire section of Denton Road from the Ross Clark Circle intersection to Westgate Parkway will then be a 5-lane roadway. The project will require utility re-location in order to widen the roadway. New sidewalks will be installed along both sides of Denton Road. Intersection and signal improvements will take place at the intersections of Ross Clark Circle and Murray Road.

This project is being funded by a combination of Federal MPO (Metropolitan Planning Organizations) and the City of Dothan funds. The Alabama Department of Transportation administers the Federal MPO funds available for this project. The total estimated project cost is $7,548,068.45. Federal MPO funds account for $4,987,829.00 of this project, and the City of Dothan is funding an estimated amount of $2,560,239.45.
