More construction on Interstate 20 through the county will cause delays next week, according to a release from the Alabama Department of Transportation.
According to the release, weather permitting, state troopers will conduct rolling roadblocks between mile markers 147 and 149 Monday-Thursday, July 9-12, from 7-7:20 p.m. in the westbound lanes, for blasting. Additionally, the outside westbound lane of I-20 will be closed between mile markers 147 and 149 from 7 p.m.-6 a.m. each evening to remove loose material from the blasting.
This work is part of the ALDOT’s Progress 20 project to widen the last four-lane segment of I-20 in St. Clair County, between Pell City and Moody.
A reduced speed limit of 45 mph is in effect throughout the work zone. Motorists are urged to consider using alternate routes, adjust arrival/departure times, observe work-zone speed limits and other work-zone signs, and use extreme caution in this area. State troopers will control traffic and strictly enforce speed limits.
