The stone gateways project will identify Trussville’s historic community with entrances reading: “Cahaba Homestead Village — U.S. Resettlement Administration — Est. 1936-1938.” The sandstone entrance designs are based on the original sandstone entrance at the Parkway Drive and Alabama 11 intersection. The three propose d locations, which surround the boundaries of the Cahaba Project, include:

  • Chalkville Road/Rockridge Avenue/Poplar Street intersection
  • Poplar Street/Parkway Drive intersection
  • Magnolia Mall along Chalkville Road between Hewitt Street and Magnolia Court
