HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Nighttime resurfacing on U.S. 72 is set to begin on Tuesday, April 19th, according to a spokesperson with the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT).
ALDOT said the $4.7 million project will begin on the evening of Tuesday, April 19, weather permitting.
The project will resurface around seven miles of U.S. 72 from County Line Road to Alabama 255/Research Park Boulevard.
The work will be done from 6:00pm to 6 a.m. from Sunday nights through Thursday nights into Friday mornings. Seth Burkett, with ALDOT said, “you know, I’d expect in the earlier parts of the evening you would see some delays, that’ll probably die down as the night wares on.”
Burkett also said to expect lane closures throughout the duration of the resurfacing project. “I would expect single lane closures, you know, most evenings, within those time frames” he said.
He said ALDOT plans to do the repaving in sections, however there could be lane closures in both directions at the same tome.
Burkett said ALDOT plans to have the work completed by the fall, if the weather cooperates.
