The construction of a pedestrian bridge over Highway 280 may be one step closer to reality. The Mountain Brook City Council has approved a proposal that if finalized would create the Highway 280 Public Road Cooperative District with Homewood, Birmingham and Jefferson County.
Birmingham offers its people just about everything they could ever need: impeccable restaurants, great music, active nightlife and amazing shopping. Whether you are on the hunt for a gift, a new outfit or just in the mood to browse, there is a boutique for you in just about every neighborhood in this city.
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.
Before I moved to Birmingham I thought of Hoover, AL as just the high school football stronghold of the state, maybe because of that TV show from a few years ago. Hoover is a thriving suburb of Birmingham, a small city with momentum that is continuing to see a surge of new housing, business centers and retail development.

Did you notice the long lines, sometimes 400 people deep, Wednesday morning in Hoover? The Whole Foods grand opening in the former Riverchase Village brought out huge crowds. Hoover has eagerly awaited the opening of the organic-grocery giant for almost 3 years.
