Things are moving along in South Huntsville and they will be moving along a lot easier now.
On Tuesday, “Phase II” of Haysland Road through the Hays Farm development was opened from Grissom High School to Redstone Road.
Mayor Tommy Battle, City Council President Jennie Robinson, and Director of Engineering Kathy Martin cut the ribbon for the two-mile roadway.
Haysland Road provides a parallel road in the city’s growing southern corridor to ease congestion on Memorial Parkway as well as provide direct access to Grissom High School and Redstone Arsenal.
The $8 million project includes a 12-foot-wide multiuse path through approximately 250 acres of preserved open space.
The Hays Farm development will include single-family homes, apartments and townhouses to complement retail businesses and a nine-acre city park.
