ADOT Get Ready for This Year’s Hurricane Season

AP_805267367971The Alabama Department of Transportation is getting ready for the beginning of hurricane season on June 1.

Workers will conduct a drill to practice reversing the traffic flow on Interstate 65 in south Alabama on Wednesday.

Traffic won’t be affected, and drivers will stay in their normal lanes. But workers will do a dress rehearsal of the actions needed to make the southbound lanes flow northward. That’s what could happen if a coastal evacuation is needed because of a hurricane threat.

The drill will be conducted on I-65 between Mobile and Montgomery.
