On Thursday, April 5, the I-59/20 Southbound area is closed at the I-65 interchange, due to construction activities that occurred overnight and created an unsafe condition. The I-65 ramps to I-65 Northbound and South will remain open.
Please use a detour at I-65 Northbound to 16th Street and then use I-65 Southbound to return to I-59 Southbound.
The Alabama Department of Transportation is requesting that motorists use alternate routes, adjust arrival/departure times, observe work zone speed limits and other work zone signs, and use extreme caution in this area.
