Alabama Department of Transportation Chief of Engineering Services Brian Davis presents a report detailing a study of traffic in Etowah County at the Chamber of Gadsden & Etowah County, Monday, Nov. 16, 2015, in Gadsden.

...
Brian Davis, chief of the engineering division with the Alabama Department of Transportation, has completed a study that assessed traffic needs in Etowah County. He presented his findings Monday.
Davis said he initially did not plan to consider the Interstate 759 extension as part of his recommendations, but after speaking with elected officials from across Etowah County and evaluating the traffic, he believes the extension is needed.
"There was a consensus that what's good for Gadsden is going to be good for the county as a whole," Davis told a group gathered Monday at The Chamber of Gadsden & Etowah County. He said he talked to officials across the county - from Boaz, Walnut Grove and Altoona to Glencoe and Hokes Bluff.
Elected officials and highway personnel heard Davis explain the study that evaluated and projected traffic and looked at what improvements realistically can be done.
John Cooper, director of ALDOT, asked Davis to do similar studies across the state and announced the Etowah County study at a meeting in July.
...
Davis said the study reflects what is needed, not necessarily how to pay for it. That's up to local and ALDOT officials to determine.
Davis said he recommends four short-term improvements that would greatly improve traffic in the next 20 years.
...
"It does not appear that the goal included an emphasis on the proposed facility's impact on the local roadways in and around the downtown Gadsden area, which would thus help to alleviate traffic congestion problems," Davis said.
He said as development has occurred in more recent years, including the growth on East Meighan Boulevard between the Meighan Bridge and Gadsden Regional Medical Center, increased traffic congestion has become a problem. The existing six-lane section of U.S. 431 not only carries commuter traffic as it has for many years, it now is carrying local shopping traffic attempting to access the many businesses that have developed within the corridor, Davis said.
"If steps are not taken to address this increasing traffic congestion, it could potentially become a deterrent to the shoppers who are traveling the corridor," he said.
Although Davis said he believes an extension of I-759 is needed, he believes a more detailed traffic study is needed before the project can proceed.
"You've got an opportunity to separate your commuter from your shopper," he said, adding that doing the extension without an updated study could cause more harm than good, because so many traffic issues have changed since the most recent study was done in 2008.
In a detailed report, Davis said without the I-759 extension, many highways would exceed their capacity by 2033.
...
A two-lane northbound bridge on Alabama Highway 77 at Southside would cost about $30.9 million, Davis said, and the existing bridge also would stay in place.
Additional lanes on U.S. Highway 411 from Alabama Highway 77 to Third Street would cover several miles and cost about $40.3 million, Davis said. However, it could be done in phases.
Davis said if he were to prioritize those four recommendations, he would suggest the I-759 extension study, saying it wouldn't be too soon "if we started that in the morning."

That's up to local and ALDOT officials to determine.Davis said he recommends four short-term improvements that would greatly improve traffic in the next 20 years. This includes an updated study for the I-759 extension. The latest study was done several years ago."You didn't have the conditions on (U.S. Highway) 431 that you have now," he said.The original extension plan was for a high-speed, nonstop freeway or expressway. More recent studies have controlled access points that tie in at the end of the existing I-759 at George Wallace Drive, and then have signaled intersections off East Broad Street and Litchfield Avenue before merging into the existing intersection at U.S. 431 and 278."It does not appear that the goal included an emphasis on the proposed facility's impact on the local roadways in and around the downtown Gadsden area, which would thus help to alleviate traffic congestion problems," Davis said.He said as development has occurred in more recent years, including the growth on East Meighan Boulevard between the Meighan Bridge and Gadsden Regional Medical Center, increased traffic congestion has become a problem.

With the extension, it would be less congested on other highways that project a huge problem 20 years from now if the extension isn't done.The cost of the new study would be $100,000.Davis recommends three other options to improve traffic in Etowah County: new bridges over the Coosa River on Meighan Boulevard and Alabama Highway 77 at Southside, and additional lanes on U.S. Highway 411 between Alabama Highway 77 in Rainbow City and South Third Street near Riverview Regional Medical Center.He said a new bridge at Meighan Boulevard would cost about $51.2 million, but work could be designed so traffic on the existing four-lane bridge is not interrupted during construction.A two-lane northbound bridge on Alabama Highway 77 at Southside would cost about $30.9 million, Davis said, and the existing bridge also would stay in place.Additional lanes on U.S. Highway 411 from Alabama Highway 77 to Third Street would cover several miles and cost about $40.3 million, Davis said.
