Before I shot pictures at The Field of Champions / Piedmont High School I toured the small town of Piedmont, AL and took some photos of the road scenes. Piedmont has four major highways that run through the town. U.S. 278, AL-21, AL-9, and AL-200 carries most of the traffic through town. First off is U.S. 278; the highway is a 4-lane through town with one traffic light and a 4-way stop.
AL-9 runs through the middle of town. It has two traffic lights and it goes through some very pretty scenery in town!
AL-200 serves as a bypass for traffic on AL-21. The road is not very long and it connects to US-278.
This weird intersection at AL-21 and AL-200 is very weird. If you are coming south on AL-21 you have to yield to AL-200 traffic. This means if you drive a truck or car and you can not see to your right you have to hope a car is not going to hit you. This needs to change as AL-200 traffic needs to yield to AL-21 traffic. AL-200 traffic can look to the left to see if a car is coming!
