MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – Overnight work will be resuming on I-565 next week.

The Alabama Department of Transportation said crews will continue resurfacing a stretch of the interstate between Intergraph Way in Madison and Triana Boulevard in Huntsville from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday-Thursday. This work will affect both directions of the interstate starting Sunday, March 20.

The project was on hold due to weather; paving materials require warmer temperatures according to ALDOT officials. Some work items will remain on hold as well.

Completion is expected in late summer or early fall; the project is nearly halfway complete.

Until then, ALDOT advised drivers to expect overnight delays on I-565 between Huntsville and Madison.

ALDOT spokesperson, Seth Burkett said part of the resurfacing includes adding the upper layer of pavement, which helps drivers in poor weather situations. “It reduces spray from vehicles, it reduces ponding on the interstate because it’s got a more porous layer of pavement” Burkett said. “It reduces the likelihood of vehicle hydroplaning.”
