As Hurricane Sally makes landfall in Alabama, Birmingham City Councilor Crystal Smitherman said her community is bracing for potential flooding caused by drainage issues on 6th Avenue South.

Councilor Smitherman said she is determined to see the issue resolved. Problems stemming from deteriorating infrastructure–such as road flooding, dangerous railroad crossings, and bridges in disrepair–have been impacting residents for years in District 6. Smitherman has made it one of her goals to advocate for improvements to the existing infrastructure.

“We have a responsibility as city leaders to make sure our roads are safe for everyone living and traveling through Birmingham,” Smitherman said. “I’ve had to drive through this when it was flooded and it’s not a safe situation.”

 

The press conference will be at 12:30 p.m. at 515 6th Ave South, Birmingham, AL 35205
