Stephens Billboard Down - Photo Courtesy Of Scenic Alabama

Lisa at Scenic Alabama posted recently about the pending change in view for morning commuters coming into Birmingham, Alabama on the Stephens Expressway (U.S. 280 & U.S. 31 as they enter downtown). The problem is not that it’s coming down, it’s what’s going back up.

It is one of three electronic billboard signs going up throughout our metropolitan area. It has definitely spurred a debate in our fair city, as covered in these two pieces written in recent months:

Council debates a bright future, City Hall, Black & White, 5.17.2007

More LED billboards set for area, The Birmingham News, 6.13.2007

Based on the comments made from all three sources, it seems like it’s an issue that is far from being dealt with.
