Getting to Redstone Arsenal in south Huntsville just got a little easier with the opening of the Haysland Road Extension, Phase II on Nov. 10.

According to Huntsville city officials, the two-mile road extension along Haysland to Hobbs Road will help relieve congestion on South Parkway and provide additional access to Gate 3 on Redstone Road.

The project includes more than two miles of a new 12-foot wide multiuse path through approximately 250 acres of preserved open space. The city will be continuing this multi-use path to Hobbs Road in a separate greenway project.

The $8 million project is complete and a soft opening of the roadway occurred on Nov. 10, with the official opening scheduled for Friday.
