MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Alabama Department of Transportation will begin a resurfacing project on Interstate 65 in Butler County Monday.

According to ALDOT, the project will continue from the County Road 41 overpass until a mile south of the Lowndes County line. It will begin on July 12th, weather permitting. It will consist of resurfacing and traffic markings.

Lane closures can take place from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. ALDOT says motorists should expect delays, plan accordingly, and be mindful of crew members and equipment.

Ahead of the project, ALDOT says signs will be placed throughout the project limits starting Tuesday.

The resurfacing project area also includes the site where nine children and one adult were killed in an accident involving multiple vehicles, but the work is not related to the accident.

According to ALDOT, while the project does include the area near the crash site, the work is not related.

ALDOT should complete the project by Fall 2021.
