When I first moved to Birmingham from Georgia, the hit “Move” by Ludacris was big. The lyrics are about Atlanta traffic on Interstate 20, but I soon learned the tune is perfectly appropriate for Highway 280 in the Greater Birmingham area. Hoover mayor Frank Brocato wants to change that, and he thinks a rapid transit system is the answer.
Ole 280. Gotta love the history of traffic and frustration that follows the heavily used area of Birmingham.
One thing is for sure, there is never a dull moment down by 459, and it is about to get a lot more fun 😉The Colonnade is one of the most popular areas off of 280, beside the Summit.
Where 280 and 119 meet, you know, where the Chick-fil-a is located, will eventually be home to a new development called Tattersall Park.
The land, which has been seemingly vacant for years, will begin its redevelopment process by introducing Next Levl (reported on earlier) as the first tenant.
While driving down Highway 280 last night, I was taken aback at the price of gasoline. Traveling south just past the Best Buy/Target shopping area, I spotted this BP/Circle K (below) selling gas at $1.93 a gallon. It wasn’t a fluke. Further down Highway 280 there were additional stations selling regular gas between $1.93 to $1.99.
