Maybe they will have a drive-thru where people can buy fake college degrees on their way into work.

I hope they plan on expanding all the roads in the area. 20,000 more cars trying to come down 565 and Research Parkway? When are they going to expand the roadways around Huntsville?

Redstone really needs to get the traffic management situation under control. Gate 9 is a nightmare now what is going to happen when the construction starts. Leaving the arsenal is just as bad. Who figured out that two lanes at 35MPH was going to handle traffic leaving through gate 9 in the afternoons, guess what it is backed up. The speed limit needs to stay at 55 all the way out the gate. Goss road needs to be closed or a bridge needs to be made for cross traffic. Ziert road needs to be 4 lanes and the Martin Road West gate needs to be improved. Martin road west of Ziert needs to be 4 lane as well. This will take some of the Madison Traffic off of gate 9. This needs to happen before construction starts not years after.

Look, gate 9 already can't handle morning and afternoon rushes. If you push the gate back a half mile you are going to have nightmarish congestion between people trying to enter the gate and people trying to enter / exit the businesses. But hey, maybe the new mall will have Gondola rides!

From the previous comments it would appear that some people are afraid of growth and unwilling to make some small sacrifices. Lets not worry about overcrowding Popeye's at lunch (I'm sure they wouldn't mind the extra business). The traffic shouldn't be to much of an inconvenience and a small price to pay for the greater advancement of this growing area. It's time for some forward thinking and less status quo mind set. If your afraid of growth, move away and make room for those who welcome the growth and expansion. Have a wonderful forward thinking day!!!!!

If you think traffic is bad, try driving in Chicago or D.C. during rush hour. You will be proud to come back and drive here in Huntsville. Again have a wonderful forward thinking day!!!!!

If that new mall is going to be something like Birmingham's Riverchase Galleria then they better close gate 9 and relocate all the government employees living north of the city to Ditto Landing (alias Whiteburg) and use the south gates, ha ha.

Thought the Bridge Street Town Center was good enough to let government employees spend prolonged lunch breaks on tax payers money.

Wouldn't count on it. The planning here is horrendous.

20,000 new jobs? hmmmmm I wonder where they'll ship them in from? Hope there's enough people left around here that can afford to spend money to help them keep those jobs. Rather have the cows in the field. At least you can eat a cow. Typical bureaucratic thinking. Like putting paint on a burned house.

The stupid city can't keep the streets paved, the teachers in school, and got screwed on the jail. They can't handle a project of this size.

DIDN"T RSA just build that new visitors center last year? And now they want to move it? This has been in the planning stages since 2006.

The people of Madison are getting screwed when it comes to improving roads. Glad I live in S. Huntsville. You can promote living in Madison all you want to the 20K+ and have all the traffic headaches. All the over crowding of the schools too.

First of all, Who's getting the payoff ?

Move it into the Bankrupt Circuit City building and the other vacant ones.
When schools are bad, the people that "care" about their children move.
When Madison Square starts to die, like the old Parkway City, we can spend a lot of tax money to fix it; or tear it down like Heart of Huntsville.
My Huntsville is turning into something I wish it wouldn't.
Soon the be the Mega Capital of good ole Bama.
