The creek should remain as undisturbed as possible. The bridge can be built at an alternate location.

Hurricane Creek is the ancestral home of my Price ancestors. They pioneered this area and surrounding areas along Hurricane Creek. They were a very close community of families that helped and loved one another..and many many families today related to these Hurricane Creek families in Tuscaloosa.. My ancestors rest in peace at Big Hurricane Creek Cemetary. The beauty of the woods and being a child visiting near Providence is a memory still inside today. Hurricane Creek tells many stories from the past and the history of our Tuscaloosa is a treasure that cannot be dismissed or forgotten. Preserve the beauty and the echoes of yesterday. It is everywhere along the banks of Hurricane Creek..The area can educate so many of our youth in the area and help so many remember...all creeks go to rivers.. ""Time is a river that flows to the sea and a life is a whisper, a kiss in a dream."

When small towns and their natural habitat is suffering already, it is not right to completely destroy what is trying to survive on its own, cause you will never be able to get it back! Some things, such as a natural habitat, should be protected at all costs, so that people in general will appreciate some of the small things in life and to know what it is like to have that kind of exposure!!

I have been aware of the bypass plan since 1998. If it has been this long since the plan was announced, there has to be a significant amount of documented concern over the particular location crossing Hurricane Creek. Please let this be a government of the people and for the people.

I'm a Tuscaloosa native and there's nothing I miss more about the place than roaming the trails and swimming in the water at Hurricane Creek. I met my husband there and together we have so many fond memories of the place. Living in the swamps (which are beautiful in their own right), one misses the simplest things like swimmable natural bodies of water and the incredible rock formations that can be found along Hurricane Creek. It is a shame Tuscaloosa still does not realize what it has going for it.

The Creek is a treasure in Tuscaloosa, progress shouldn't hurt the wonderful natural resources we already have.

I grew up in Tuscaloosa, and Hurricane Creek was always a magical place. Tuscaloosa is too small to need this massively hideous bypass.

I lived in Tuscaloosa, Al for several years and spent many days at Hurricane Creek. It is a treasure. Please don't ruin it for an interstate.

Hurricane Creek is the happy place I go to in my mind when all is chaos around me. The caves are fragile and amazing, the wildlife: deer, owls, soft-shelled turtles, even saw a bear there once. I carried a garbage bag of trash out of there at least once a week for four years or so until I thankfully couldn't find anymore. When I took a botany class at UA I brought back specimens that the teacher did not believe I had gathered around Tuscaloosa, such as the Florida Anise Tree. It is a magical place with sandy shores... please help preserve it!

I used to canoo Huricane Creek. What a beautiful area for just relaxing and picnicking sharing an afternoon with a stranger. Thirty years ago a great spot to hang out and do whatever.
