TRAFFIC ALERT: Lane Closures Expected on I-65 Beginning November 13
An Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) project on Interstate 65 in Butler County that began on Tuesday, September 18 will have daytime lane closures beginning Monday, November 13.
There will not be lane closures northbound from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. or southbound 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Lane closures had been limited to evening hours. Due to seasonal limitations, the daytime closures are necessary to complete the project.
The project consists of planing, resurfacing, and traffic stripe on Interstate 65 near the County Road 141 overpass to south of Beaver Creek and cable guide rail installation from the Conecuh County line to half a mile north of County Road 28.
Motorists are advised to use caution while traveling through a construction zone and expect delays.
ALDOT awarded the approximately $3.4 million contract to Midsouth Paving, Inc., out of Birmingham, who had the lowest bid that met project requirements. The project should be completed by the end of the year.
ALDOT’s mission is to provide a safe, efficient, environmentally sound transportation network across Alabama.
