Project Summary

The proposed University Boulevard Hackberry to 6th Avenue Infrastructure and Security Improvements project (“Project”) will create much-needed improvements to the storm drainage along University Boulevard and around Farrah Hall. The Project will also include the removal of the old concrete paving in that section of University Boulevard and replacement with new asphalt paving to create a smooth and aesthetically pleasing road surface consistent with the previous phases of University Boulevard.

Phase A of the Project, completed Summer of 2023, provided a new operable bollard system in the roadway for vehicular control to be used on University of Alabama home football game days and other special events hosted in the area to provide a secure perimeter. It also included replacement of the concrete paving from the Hackberry intersection to the eastern edge of 6th Avenue and provided enhanced landscaping and hardscaping along this highly traveled gateway to the heart of the University of Alabama campus.

Phases B and C of this Project, to be completed Summer 2024, will create additional improvements to the storm drainage along 6th Ave through the intersection of University Boulevard and in the south lawn of Gallalee Hall. The Project will also include the removal of the old concrete paving and the soon to be decommissioned steam tunnel along 6th Avenue including the intersection of University Boulevard and replacement with the new asphalt paving to create a smooth and aesthetically pleasing road surface consistent with the previous phases of University Boulevard. This Phase of work will also include improvements to 6th Avenue to facilitate integrating 6th Avenue into the Transit system as 2 way traffic.

Phase B will consist of work in 6th Avenue from south of the University Boulevard intersection to the alley between Foster Auditorium and Farrah Hall. This Phase of work will be completed prior to May.

Phase C, to be completed between May and July 2024, will include a new traffic signal for bus traffic traveling south on 6th Avenue and repaving of 6th Avenue and rework the University and 6th Avenue Intersection. The project will rework the radius curb lines on the north side of Bryant Drive at 6th Avenue to accommodate bus traffic that will now be travelling south on 6th Ave towards Bryant Drive and allow them room for turning onto Bryant Drive. The project will also include the installation of UA furnished historic Tuscaloosa Trolly Interpretive Display.
