HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) –  Memorial Parkway commuters see more orange barrels and construction equipment at the Martin Road interchange. If you’re headed back to work on the Arsenal in the coming days, pay close attention because these changes will impact you and likely cause delays.

The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) made a number of changes as part of the South Memorial Parkway improvements project.

  • Ramp from NB Memorial Parkway to Martin Road and part of EB Martin Road west of the Parkway have been closed

  • EB Martin Road traffic has been shifted to the inside WB lane

  • Detour for NB Parkway drivers trying to get to WB Martin is the service road U-turn loop at Golf Road

  • Ramp from EB Martin to NB Parkway will close in two weeks; at that time, contractors will open a temporary ramp allowing traffic from Martin to NB Memorial Parkway

So if you’re headed north on the Parkway trying to get on the Arsenal, you have to pass where the Martin Road turn once was, continue north, turn around at the Golf Road loop, heading south on Parkway access road, and get on Martin Road westbound that way.

Drivers are encouraged to pay extra attention to the signs and barricades in the area to stay abreast of the best way to your destination.

Closures will remain in place until December 2017 when the first phase of the project is complete. That first phase will see service roads between Golf Road and Whitesburg Drive and improve the bridge and interchange at Martin Road.

The second phase will bring overpasses at Byrd Spring Road and Lily Flagg, that is set to be complete in June 2019.
