Work on I-65 bridges begins Monday

The Associated Press

State highway crews on Monday will begin some $250,000 in repairs to the Interstate 65 bridges over the Tennessee River.

A spokesman for the Alabama Department of Transportation said the roadwork could go on for as long as 10 weeks.

The work will be going on from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. During the work, one lane in each direction should always be open.

Crews will repair concrete caps and supports, replace steel braces and joint seals.

The northbound and southbound I-65 bridges, which opened in 1973, are about two miles long.
