FOR THOSE of you who may think you’re looking at a fairy tale, that REALLY IS construction on the Eastern Bypass that you see in and around Five Points in Saks.
It’s the beginning (if you’re going north-south) of the long-promised and maddeningly delayed fast route around Anniston. In other words, just as our newspaper reported a few months back, this is for real, not the pipe dream long promised by officialdom.
Also, you won’t be getting a traffic-numbing intersection at the junction of the bypass and Alabama 21. The bypass, for all of you who have been asking, will vault over 21 and come down into Five Points at Saks.
And you’re welcome ...
