DOT Announces Long-term Bridge Closure
Those of you who travel to downtown Birmingham need to be aware of a long term detour. Alabama Department of Transportation officials closed the northbound bridge on I-59/20 for construction last night. ALDOT says the bridge and ramp carrying traffic into downtown Birmingham will remain closed until about July 2018. For the next 13 months, officials recommend suing the 22nd Street ramps to get to the downtown Birmingham area.
