ALDOT to close 59/20 ramp at I-65 tonight, Thursday

Malfunction Junction from above

The Alabama Department of Transportation announced Monday that -- weather permitting -- it will shut down the ramp from Interstate 59/20 South leading to I-65 southbound on Monday and Thursday nights. 

The closures are scheduled to last from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. 

ALDOT is closing the ramp to set steel beams across the interstate in downtown Birmingham. 

Cars traveling south on 59/20 will be detoured past the closed ramp to the Arkadelphia Road exit then onto 59/20 north to reach I-65. Message boards will be up along the path of the detour. 

ALDOT says a reduced speed limit of 45 miles per hour is in effect throughout the work zone. ALDOT is requesting motorists consider using alternate routes, adjust arrival/departure times, observe work zone speed limits and other work zone signs. 

The interchange between I-59/20 and I-65 through downtown is being redesigned as part of a major roadway project.

construction mishap shut down I-59/20 at that interchange for nearly a week earlier this month after a temporary support failed, causing a steel beam to "shift."
