While I understand the need for improvement, I believe that Nance needs to be completed before they start on Wall Triana. They're going to cause a huge bottleneck of traffic on Hwy 53 and Jeff Road and those are extremely busy already. With school about to start, this will be a nightmare! Not good planning, in my opinion.

I just wish they would make the area from Walltriana to Huges just like University Dr. Would make everything easier traveling through Madison.

The lack of coordination of the city governments in this area is beyond belief! The Nance Road project has all the earmarks of being a boondoggle deal of a developer greasing the right palms to get the road widened amazingly ONLY as far as his new housing development, the remainder of the road will still be the same clogged mess it always has been. Meanwhile the Nance Rd traffic has been forced over to Wall Triana, making it worse. Now the City of Madison makes another signature move in deciding to screw up Wall Triana Hwy even further. This will force traffic over to Balch Rd. Remember the dangerous intersection of Balch Rd & Capshaw Rd when the Wall triana bridges were being widened? NOW maybe someone will be killed there THIS TIME! What kind of half-wits are running Madison? Will they be happy when this happens?

Get serious! With Nance closed (for the next year) now they are going to further bottleneck Wall Triana? I realize this is two different Govt entities - but come on folks let's get together, prioritize projects and not block in an entire community.

Oh man, that's going to be a pain in the (fill in the blank). Heaven help us all if there is an accident and/or emergency north of 72!

The lack of city/road planning here totally amazes me. Huntsville is like the only place in this whole county that has any vision, I have no troubles driving through Huntsville, but #*%# hits the fan once you leave city limits.

With all this new construction (houses/businesses) 72 should be 3 lanes atleast till you leave Madison, Hughes, Wall-Triana, and Madison Pike should all be 4 lanes through Madison, HWY 53 should be 4 lanes to the interstate. That's my 2 cents.

Mind you even electric I swear if you look at all the power lines along 72 some are bent and don't look in the best of shape, when I lived off 72 in Madison OMG the power would just go out sometimes for who knows what on a clear sunny day for 30 min or a couple hours sometimes, why won't they just replace them all with metal ones (they are when they break atleast)? It's all because of $$$$ and lazyness probably...

This is nuts.. this project should have been done BEFORE Nance Road was closed? It could have been done during the time Wal-Triana was closed to Capshaw? Oh, I forgot .. that would have made too much sense!!!

Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful for the new roads.. but what about shutting down one street at a time?! Planning is important.. but I'm not sure it occured to the decision makers that came up with these projects and the timelines. YOU should have to drive this area during rush hour every day.

We already have Balch & Nance Road closed. Nance will be closed for a year. Everyone in the area is using Wal-Triana or Capshaw for morning and evening computes to Huntsville. It's bumper to bumper trafic everyday. It's taken me as long as 55 minutes to get to Huntsville.(It took 12-15 minutes to drive when I first moved to Harvest.) I guess you think that's not enough of a traffic JAM..let's just add more delays at Wal-Triana!?

Just like when we build a nice new road that would really help with traffic we always mess it up because we need to add a school to the area. I guess school zones help with trafic control too?

Silly me, and I thought it would be safer for our kids to be away from major roads and let traffic flow without school zones.
Just goes to show what I know.

I think that the city of Madison is doing one of the dumbest things in history! Once they close wall triana and 72 down, I will have to travel to Jeff road just to get around. The City really needs to think about it's money. Yes, this project needs to get done but not at this time. Wait for Nance road then do it. We have so many other projects we could be doing than this!

Both Huntsville and Madison City should have taken in consideration Nanace Road will be closed another 6 or 7 months for construction. Now two major North bound roads for those living oin the Monrovia/Harvest area are closed or limited. Traffic is already feeling Nace Closure no one lane only traffic on Wall Triana will kill everything. The business comminuty will suffer as well; Star Market, Hardee's, McDonalds, Lowes, Express Lube, because if you shop at them you will have to find alternative routes in and out of them. Next time look at what the other is woorking on in your area and ask those it will impact the most. I live in Monrovia/Harvest area North of 72 W thanks for the trouble.l

They should have done this years ago as they was building so many homes. Now it is a bigger problem. Nance road is closed, balch is getting work and construction at jeff and 72. What a bottle neck!! if you live north of 72 it is like your almost land locked. What great planning!!

Just gotta wonder this: When the sign says "slow", does that refer to the mentality of the project, or does it reflect the speed with which it will be done?
