Graymont Avenue in Birmingham will be repaved

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) – If you’re planning on going to the Magic City Classic, it’s going to be a smoother ride for years to come. Graymont Avenue will soon be completely repaved.

It won’t cost the city a penny – all funding will come from ALDOT’s Rebuild Alabama Act. The grant will not exceed $250,000.

In the absence of financial consideration required by the city, it is not surprising that the council approved the decision on Tuesday.

As to when work might begin, that remains to be determined.

Councilman Hunter Williams says the paving schedule is based on average temperatures.

So maybe spring or even fall, whatever, he thinks efforts like this are key to helping attract and retain events in the area.

“We continued the events at Legion Field as well as the Magic City Classic. We just renewed the contract where it will continue to be at Legion Field, including all the tailgating that goes with it. So if anyone’s driven to Graymont, whether you’re on your way to Princeton or you’re on your way to Legion Field, you know it’s very necessary,” Councilman Williams said.
