ALDOT to repair approaches to 2 bridges over I-65 in Morgan County


MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. – ALDOT will repair the approaches to two bridges carrying local roads over Interstate 65 in Morgan County in the coming weeks. Motorists should expect around-the-clock closures of the Parker Road and Bethel Road bridges and approaches for about three days each while work takes place.

Weather permitting, crews will begin repairing the approaches to the Parker Road overpass at 8 a.m. Monday, March 18. ALDOT anticipates reopening the road by 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 20.

ALDOT plans to start repairs near the Bethel Road overpass the following Monday, March 25, and reopen the road on or about Wednesday, March 27.

For each repair, crews will erect barricades in the vicinity of the bridges and position message boards to advise motorists of the temporary road closures. Motorists should use alternate routes.

The work is limited to the county/city roads, and no impacts to traffic on I-65 are expected.
