I-20/59 OVERPASS WORK WILL CLOSE SECTION OF MCFARLAND BOUELVARD THIS WEEKEND

The Alabama Department of Transportation is taking advantage of light traffic while they continue updating Interstate 20/59.

This weekend, McFarland Boulevard under the I-20/59 bridge is closing in both directions so contractors can install girders for the new bridge overpass.

Closures begin Friday, April 24 at 8 p.m. and last through Monday, April 27 at 5 a.m.

Law enforcement will be present and assisting with traffic.

The work is part of the project adding lanes and replacing the bridge over McFarland Boulevard, and encompasses I-20/59 between Exit 73 and 77. Completion is scheduled for December.

Drivers should expect delays, and are encouraged to use Skyland Boulevard, Interstate 359 or other alternate routes.
