JEFFERSON COUNTY –. Weather permitting, the construction project to replace the 12th Avenue North Bridge that spans over I-59/20 just north of downtown Birmingham will continue as follows:

This closure will be between the US 31/ HWY 280 Expressway Exit (126A) and the 31st Street North Bridge. Please see the below for time and location.

  • Wednesday, January 4 at 9 a.m., the I-59 Northbound INSIDElane near MP 126.5 will be closed until approximately 2 p.m. Wednesday, January 4.

State troopers will be on site to assist with blue lighting for the lane closures.
