HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – During the 1950s and 60s, Huntsville underwent a population growth due to the construction of the Redstone Arsenal and the Marshall Space Flight Center.

Then, in October 1991, driving through Huntsville became easier with the opening of Interstate 565.

The interstate connects I-65 with U.S. Highway 72 and stretches over 22 miles.
