Work continues on Interstate 20 as part of the Alabama Department of Transportation’s project to widen the last four-lane segment of the roadway in St. Clair County.
Weather permitting, state troopers will conduct rolling roadblocks between Exits 144 and 153 today through Thursday from 7-7:10 p.m. in the eastbound lanes and from 7-7:20 p.m. in the westbound lanes, for blasting. On-ramps to I-20 will be closed at Exit 147 eastbound and at Exit 152 westbound during the rolling roadblocks.
A reduced speed limit of 45 mph is in effect throughout the work zone. Motorists are urged to consider using alternate routes, adjust arrival/departure times, observe work-zone speed limits and other work-zone signs, and use extreme caution in this area. State troopers will control traffic and strictly enforce speed limits.
This work is part of the ALDOT’s Progress 20 project to widen the last four-lane segment of I-20 in St. Clair County. The scheduled completion date on the project is Oct. 1.
The Progress 20 Web site and toll-free project update information line, along with posters, brochures and signage, are part of the Alabama Department of Transportation’s Progress on Alabama Roadways campaign to keep travelers informed of the progress being made to improve the state’s interstates. Additional ongoing projects include Progress 20 in Calhoun, Cleburne, and Talladega counties, Progress 59 in Etowah County and Progress 65 in Jefferson and Shelby counties.
