The moratorium - which would stop any lights from being approved from Hugh Daniel Drive to the Talladega County line - hasn't been approved yet, said Brian Davis, division engineer for the Department of Transportation.
The county is expected to pass a joint resolution with the cities of Westover, Chelsea and Harpersville
calling for the moratorium before the department will consider the request, Davis
"It would only affect future lights on 280, where all the construction is going on," Davis
The lights at county roads 41 and 43 are under construction and should be operating by mid-January, Davis
The access management plan was developed by Gresham, Smith and Partners
in a two-year study.
