Interstate 65/85 work starts Monday

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) --  Attention drivers, interstate construction will begin Monday afternoon.

Construction will focus around the I-65 and I-85 interchange near downtown.  Starting tomorrow, the on-ramp from Day Street will be closed.  If you're trying to get from I-65 to I-85 from either direction, those ramps will be reduced down to just one lane.

It's all part of an existing widening project, and the work is expected to last until Thursday.

Another road closure is planned for downtown tomorrow, from McDonough Street between Columbus and Jefferson will be blocked off for Alabama Power maintenance work. But, you'll still be able to access the businesses in that area.
