MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) – From the ground County Line Road at Highway 20 is orange traffic barriers, gravel, and construction crews as far as the eye can see.

Just passing by it is hard to imagine what the interchange will look like when it’is complete in 2015.

But one Madison County man, Todd Freestone, took the air to get a birds-eye view of the construction and outline of the future interchange.

In the video he describes the project.

“Motorists westbound onto I-565 will have a new cloverleaf to exit onto county line road,” he explains.

The video shows where another eastbound exit ramp will be rerouted from I-565, and a westbound ramp will be added connecting County Line Road to the interstate.

“We’re still moving dirt, we’re still putting asphalt down, but I think in the end our citizens will be really happy,” said Mayor Troy Trulock.

Tuesday afternoon Trulock checked in with crews for an update on the $19 million project.

“The northern service road still needs to be completed and the [the two clover-leaf ramps] need to be completed as well,” explained Trulock. “They also need to move some utility poles.”

All but the last layer of asphalt has been put down on the westbound ramps. Crews will put down a final layer of asphalt once all of the roads are complete.
