Expect work on I-65 in North Alabama today and Wednesday

CULLMAN — If you’re travelling along I-65 in North Alabama over the next couple days, expect delays, lane changes and possible lane closures.

Several Alabama Department of Transportation operations will take place on the highway this week, including hot mix pothole patching, guardrail repairs, and core sampling.

In a news release, ALDOT said it is planning the work for the middle of the week to limit lane closures to off-peak travel hours on the days anticipated to have the lightest traffic volume.

  • Patching/paving
    ALDOT will pave from mile marker 319 north of Lacon to mile marker 320 south of Falkville from 8 a.m. to about 3 p.m. to repair potholes resulting from January’s winter storm. ALDOT has been using an area paving crew to make long, hot-mix asphalt patches.
    Please expect single-lane closures and delays.
  • Guardrail
    Crews will also repair guardrail on I-65 in Cullman County. Lane closures won’t be necessary for cable barrier system repairs today between Exit 305 at County Road 222 in Good Hope and Exit 310 at Alabama Highway 157 in Cullman. However, crews will close the inside lane of I-65 southbound from mile marker 315 to mile marker 313 near Vinemont on Wednesday from about 8 a.m. to about 2 p.m. to repair damaged cable and guardrail that was struck during a crash Friday.
  • Coring
    a drill crew will continue collecting samples in preparation for a future resurfacing project. TOday, they will drill on-ramps and off-ramps on the southbound roadway between Exit 334 at Alabama Highway 67 in Priceville and Exit 318 at U.S. 31 at Lacon. Wednesday, the drill crew will work northbound on I-65.

“Please remain aware that although every effort is made to limit operations to off-peak travel times, closures may extend later than initially expected,” ALDOT said in a news release.
