BIRMINGHAM – The Alabama Department of Transportation announced today, that the 2 inside lanes will be closed on I-65 Southbound at the I-59/20 Interchange in Birmingham beginning at 8 p.m. Sunday, April 8th. The lane closures are part of continued efforts to address the Emergency Closure of I-59/20 SB at this location.
