Arsenal Gate Changes, 2 Wrecks Slow Thursday Morning Traffic on I-565
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Traffic was very slow-moving this morning on Interstate 565 East in Huntsville. Shortly after 8 a.m. it was backed up all the way from Gate 9 to Wall Triana Boulevard.
The traffic was already gridlocked due to recent gate changes getting on to Redstone Arsenal. Gate 8 closed, so hundreds more drivers joined the Gate 9 traffic.
There were also two wrecks — one on Research Park Boulevard approaching Gate 9 and another in the eastbound lanes of I-565 at mile marker 10, according to Madison Police.
Madison Police say the wreck on I-565 was cleared by 9:45 a.m.
