Ground Broken On New Interchange To Connect County Line Road And I-565

It’s been a long time coming.

In fact, Madison Mayor Troy Trulock says, “This has been in the works for many, many years.  This will be the second access point to the interstate for the city of Madison.”

Officials broke ground Tuesday on a new interchange at County Line Road and I-565.

The project should make commutes easier for people trying to get to Redstone Arsenal from Madison or even people trying to get to Madison from Limestone county or Huntsville.

Leaders say it’s key to filling up the spare space that surrounds County Line Road currently, and all the attention is part of a broader strategy.

Governor Robert Bentley notes, “In the past, I believe this area in north Alabama has been left out, and when I was running for governor, I made a promise that it would not be left out if I were the governor.”

In the mean time, leaders just ask for your understanding.

Trulock says, “Citizens need to understand that the good news is, we’re under construction at this interchange.  The bad news is we’re under construction for the next year, year-and-a-half.  By May of 2015, this interchange should be done.”

    And where is the matching funding coming from…both Mayors are anxious to justify raising property & sales taxes on all of us when this is just not necessary with fewer miles being driven by all taxpayers!!!

    sometimes I just wonder where people come up with their comments for a news bite. “key to filling up the spare space that surrounds county line road”. Good grief, Charlie Brown. spare space . . and really, someone can’t drive the whole 1.5 or 2 miles to Wall-Triana to get on 565 to head east???
