Expect Major Delays in Birmingham This Weekend as I-65 South Closes to One Lane
Traveling to or through the Magic City this weekend? You may want to consider an alternate route--road work in Birmingham will reduce traffic on a portion of I-65 South to just one lane.
Beginning tomorrow (Friday, April 8, 2016), the Alabama Department of Transportation will close the left two southbound lanes of I-65 in order to complete work associated with raising the bridges over I-65 North. After this work is completed, the right two southbound lanes will be closed as crews continue to work on the project.
Work will continue the following weekend, April 15 through April 17, and continue through Wednesday, April 20, 2016 (weather permitting).
