EUFAULA, AL (WTVM) - Alabama Governor Robert Bentley has voiced his support behind a plan to widen a stretch of Highway 431 in Eufaula that runs through the city's historic district, expanding the two-lane road to four.  

Opponents say it will wreck the historic area that's lined with homes from the 19th Century and say they plan to sue. However, the Governor says the expansion will cause little to no interruption.

Department of Transportation Director John Cooper says they will use 11-foot lanes instead of 12-foot to preserve more of the median.
