Wimberly Drive traffic may change

Increased traffic and development near a major Decatur intersection could lead to changes for one city street.

The City Council on Monday could discuss changing the traffic flow of Wimberly Drive at Spring Avenue Southwest to a right-turn-in/right-turn-out intersection.

If the measure is approved in the councilís May 21 business meeting, the Police and Engineering departments could remove the traffic signal at that intersection and install any required markings, signage or barriers deemed necessary.

Project ID Place could close doors

Due to a lack of attendance, Project ID Place (formerly MochaTeen) at Colonial Mall will close unless more interest is shown.

Middle school students in Decatur, Morgan County and Hartselle who have participated in the Project ID voluntary drug-testing program are eligible to attend Friday and Saturday nights.

For more information, call the Mental Health Association at 353-1160.
