Overnight roadwork begins on I-65 near Valleydale


Lane closures are planned for I-65 near the Valleydale Road Interchange during overnight hours beginning Monday, Oct. 24.

ALDOT will close the outside right lane and shoulder of southbound I-65 at Exit 247 (Valleydale Road) in Hoover from 11 p.m. until 6 a.m. The closures will allow the department of transportation to seal the bridge joints on the I-65 southbound bridge.

After the bridge joint repairs are made to the outside right southbound lane, more repairs will be made in each of the remaining lanes. ALDOT will then repair the I-65 northbound bridge in a similar fashion.

The roadwork is expected to cause intermittent lane closure for one to two weeks, ALDOT says.
