A few more lane closures, stoppages as South Memorial Parkway construction nears completion

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Drivers should expect on Tuesday some lane closures and brief stops on South Memorial Parkway service roads ahead of Tuesday’s ribbon cutting to signify the completion of the $54 million project.

The Alabama Department of Transportation says July 31 will cause delays near Byrd Spring Road and Logan Drive/Lily Flagg Road as prep work for a new mainline will begin there.

Crews will start at 8 a.m with the closure of the mainline under the Martin Road bridge. In addition, at 9 a.m. all northbound service road traffic will be restricted from entering the mainline south of Martin Road, according to ALDOT.

They also note at 8 a.m. all southbound mainline traffic will be required to exit off the southbound service road, north of Martin.

There will be single lane closures between Whitesburg Drive and Logan Drive or Lily Flagg Road from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

According to ALDOT, the inside or outside travel lane may be closed, but at least one lane in each direction will stay open at all times.
