As Construction Continues the CBD Project

BIRMINGHAM – Friday, March 16th and Saturday, March 17th, weather permitting, the Alabama Department of Transportation will close all lanes of I-65 Northbound just south of the Interchange and the I-65 Northbound Ramp to I-59/20 Southbound from 11 p.m. til 5 a.m. The closure is necessary to set Beams across the Interstate.
