Green Springs Avenue near George Ward Park

Not to be confused with Green Springs Highway (which is another matter on it’s own). This is the road that crosses I-65 at exit 258, crosses Green Springs Highway, and goes up the hill. This is specifically about the stretch between Green Springs Highway and the intersection of 6th Street south.

There is a park on one side, and residential on the other.

Speed limit is 35, and appropriate for the area. The hills make it difficult to regulate your speed without burning your brakes up. Birmingham PD will set up either in the park itself on the jogging trail at night (and use radio to contact other units stashed nearby), or at the 4 way stop at the intersection of 6th Street South and Green Springs Avenue. There is plenty of foliage, and occasionally they will actually be a very short distance away in a private driveway, nose out, waiting for people to not come to that complete stop.

Go 35 through here, and make sure you come to a complete stop at the 4 way. Even with a city bus breathing down your neck on this narrow 2 lane road.
