Construction along I-65 causing headaches

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- Major headaches this weekend for drivers along Interstate 65 heading into Montgomery.

The Alabama Department of Transportation is continuing its work to widen a bridge on I-65 between Catoma Creek Bridge and Interstate 85 this weekend.

That means I-65 south is down to one lane through Monday morning.

"This road work is not going to happen overnight, it's a major inconvenience but when it's done the people are going to have a better roadway system," said New Orleans resident John White.

Construction on this segment of the Progress 65 project is scheduled to be complete in October.
