I-59/20 Bridge Project Update

The current Phase III closure of I-59/20 is approximately a one-mile stretch which includes the elevated section of I-59/20 through Birmingham’s Central Business District (CBD). During construction, closures beneath the CBD bridges will change as work progresses; however, the contractor has a responsibility to maintain at least one northbound and one southbound lane open at all times between 15th Street N and 18th Street N, between 19th Street N and 23rd Street N, and between 24th Street N and 26th Street N (Carraway Blvd). These streets are listed here with their current planned state of availability.


  • 16th Street North
  • 18th Street North
  • 19th Street North
  • Richard Arrington Jr. Blvd – between 9thAvenue & Rev. Abraham Woods Jr. Blvd.
  • 22nd Street North
  • 23rd Street North
  • 24th Street North
  • 25th Street North


  • 15th Street North

Please keep in mind that all construction plans can change due to weather and other factors. As always, use caution and obey the posted speed limits. Detour signs will be in place where necessary. Motorists are encouraged to use I-459 to go around the closure when possible.
