FULTONDALE — The Alabama Department of Transportation has announced that it will once again perform rolling roadblocks on Interstate 65 through the Corridor X construction area.
The roadblocks will take place at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Alabama State Troopers and Fultondale Police will manage the roadblocks in both the northbound and southbound lanes. The roadblock will start at the Fieldstown Road interchange in Gardendale heading southbound, and at Daniel Payne Drive in North Birmingham going northbound.
U.S. 31 will also be affected, from the I-65 interchange on the south end of Fultondale to Ellard Road in North Birmingham.
The roadblocks are being staged to facilitate blasting in the construction area. It may be postponed due to weather; there is a slight chance of rain forecast for Wednesday afternoon.
