HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — The Alabama Department of Transportation advised motorists that all southbound traffic on Interstate 65 between Interstate 565 and Athens will be detoured onto Exit 347 (Huntsville Brownsferry Road) from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on June 23.
Miller & Miller will be moving a large crane into position in preparation for the widening of the overpass.
Traffic will be rerouted to the off-ramp and across Huntsville Brownsferry Road to the on-ramp back to I-65 south.
ALDOT warns there will be delays and to plan accordingly. Reduce speed, be prepared to merge and exit. State troopers will be on scene to assist with traffic control.

Additional lanes will also be constructed from U.S. 31 to I-65 in an upcoming Rebuild Alabama project, totaling $13.3 million.
The City of Huntsville plans to widen the segment of Huntsville Brownsferry Road east of I-65 to Greenbrier Parkway in a separate project.
