It’s local traffic only for those who travel County Road 1301 beginning July 16. According to the Cullman County Road Department, this road will be closed from intersection 1310 to 1300 for bridge repair.

Rick Henry, Superintendent of the Street Department in the City of Cullman, reports that there will be patching crews on old Hanceville Highway, just south of Sheraton Road; on Rosemont northwest; and on 5th Street southeast by the Busy Bee restaurant. Also, the Department will close 9th St. between 3rd and 4th avenues, as a construction crew will be tearing down an old building behind the middle school.
A little less heat in our day, partly sunny, with a high near 91. A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Calm wind around 5 mph this morning. We’ll have warm evening with a low around 71 degrees, with calm wind and a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.
