BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Road crews will be working on the two left lanes and shoulder of I-20/59 East, near 22nd Street. There’s a big hole in the road in that area. Crews are scheduled to work from 8pm Friday, until 5am this upcoming Monday.
Additionally, the parking area below the road will closed. That area is typically used for events at the BJCC. Crews will be doing some emergency road work all weekend so be prepared for delays.
Also, if you’re planning to get on I-65 South this weekend, be prepared for delays there as well. Crews will be working near the I-459 interchange in Hoover. The two inside-left southbound lanes and shoulder will be closed.
The work starts Friday evening and wraps up around 5am Monday. If you don’t want to get stuck in traffic, the Alabama Department of Transportation suggests you take Highway 31 as an alternate route.
