MONTGOMERY AL, (WSFA)- As construction work continues on Interstate 65, so will road closures. According to the Alabama Department of Transportation there are two segments of I-65 that will be worked on and finished within the next 4-6 weeks.
Closures will occur at the South Boulevard to I-65, North and South on Wednesday and Thursday beginning at 9pm. They will reopen by 6am the next morning. During the closure, workers will install overhead lighting in the interchange. Drivers are encouraged by ALDOT to use the interchanges at U.S. Highway 80 and Felder Avenue as detour routes.
After the construction period ALDOT ensures that motorist can look forward to more lanes from the south side of Montgomery to Prattville. This means faster travel times for workday commuters, recreational commuters, occasional travelers, and the trucking industry. Congestion will also be reduced during rush hour and the holiday season.
