Planned Lane Closures on I-65 NB to I-59/20 SB to Set Girders Across the Interstate, in Birmingham

As Construction Continues the CBD Project

 

BIRMINGHAM – Weather permitting, the Alabama Department of Transportation will continue a project to improve the I-59/20 and I-65 Interchange as follows:

Wednesday, March 28th and Thursday, March 29th, ALDOT 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. each of these two days.  The closures are necessary to set Girders across the Interstate.

Detour routes will be in place on I-459 and on Tallapoosa Street (see attached).

The lane closures will require the use of Law Enforcement Officers.

A reduced speed limit of 45 mph is in effect throughout the work zone. Motorists are requested to consider using alternate routes, adjust arrival/departure times, observe work zone speed limits and other work zone signs, and use extreme caution in this area. ALDOT thanks motorists for their patience during this construction operation to improve Alabama’s roadways.

ALDOT’s mission is to provide a safe, efficient, environmentally sound transportation network across Alabama. For additional information please visit our project website www.5920bridge.com and for traffic alerts and updates follow us on Facebook and Twitter @5920bridge.
