Columbia was selected by the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) and Aronov Realty to provide engineering services for the widening of SR 53 and relocation of Jeff Road in Harvest, Madison County, Alabama. The project involved widening of approximately 1400 linear feet (LF) of SR 53 (urban and rural typical sections) from existing two-lanes to four-lanes with a 14-foot flush median, the relocation of approximately 2,000 LF of two-lane Jeff Road (rural typical), and a signal at the new location of Jeff Road with SR 53. This project consisted of a public/private partnership between ALDOT and Aronov Realty to provide better coordination between the transportation improvements led and new commercial subdivision being developed by Aronov Realty. The project was fast tracked as a result of an abbreviated letting schedule established by ALDOT to meet the conditions of the public-private cost-share agreement. As a result approximately two (2) years were shaved off the construction start date.
