Officials preparing for I-65 sinkhole repair

PELHAM, AL (WBRC) - Birmingham ALDOT officials hope to know sometime this week when they can begin to move forward on repairing a massive sinkhole along I-65.

Last week, engineers began looking at how long it would take to fix the problem and how those repairs would affect traffic flow.

Also, engineers are also looking at re-timing the traffic signals along Highway 31. That measure would be taken to bring drivers a little relief since the sinkhole has forced one lane of traffic to be closed along I-65.
