There are a number of  roadwork projects in the greater Birmingham area scheduled for next week, March 25th through 27th.  Here's a list from the Alabama Department of Transportation:

  • Monday, March 25 at 7 p.m. until Tuesday, March 26 at 6 a.m., at various times the northbound and southbound inside and outside lanes of State Route 75 from Huffman Road (milepost 1.93) to Fox Hill Drive (milepost 4.93) will be closed to perform paving operations at this location. The same procedure will be followed the following five nights.
  • Monday, March 25 at 7 p.m. until Tuesday, March 26 at 6 a.m., at various times the northbound and southbound inside and outside lanes of State Route 119 from US 31 in Pelham (milepost 18.50) to US 280 (milepost 27.0) will be closed to perform asphalt pavement patching operations at this location.  The same procedure will be followed the following three nights.

Weather permitting, Tuesday March 26 and Wednesday March 27, beginning at 9:30 a.m., the Alabama Department of Transportation will perform Geotechnical Investigations on I-59.  The lane closures will be as follows:

  •  I-59 northbound between the 31st Street Interchange (exit 126B) and the Tallapoosa Street Interchange (exit 128)
  • I-59 northbound exit ramp to Tallapoosa Street (exit 128).  The ramp will remain open to traffic but will be narrowed to provide adequate space for equipment and personnel, during this work.
  • The work at both locations will require the I-59 northbound outside (right) lane and shoulder to be closed while work is in progress. All travel lanes will be reopened to traffic by 3:30 p.m. each day.

Weather permitting, on Monday, March 25 at 9:30 a.m., the Alabama Department of Transportation will conduct a bridge inspection of the Highland Avenue Tunnel over US-31 (Elton B. Stephens Expressway) at milepost 273.3.

 This inspection will require the US-31southbound, inside (left) lane and shoulder to be closed in the area of the work.  Following completion of the southbound lane closure, work will continue in the northbound direction.  All travel lanes will be reopened to traffic no later than 3:00 p.m.

 Motorists are requested to consider using alternate routes, adjust arrival/departure times, observe work zone speed limits and other work zone signs, and use extreme caution in this area. ALDOT thanks motorists for their patience during this Maintenance Operation to improve Alabama's roadways.
