A roughly 4.5 mile stretch of I-65 will be resurfaced in Limestone County starting Monday.
Wiregrass Construction will start their work Monday, Oct. 28, during daytime hours. The contractor is switching from nighttime hours due to temperature limitations for materials. Weather permitting, work will be done from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Mondays through Fridays to pave the final layer of a roughly 4.5 mile segment of I-65 northbound from south of Exit 347 (Huntsville Browsferry Road) to Exit 351 (U.S. 72) in Athens.
Northbound motorists should expect delays due to single-lane closures and plan accordingly, as well as be prepared to reduce speed and merge.
The work is part of a $15.3 million project to resurface 12.4 miles of I-65 between milepost 339 (north of the Tennessee River Bridge) and Exit 351 (U.S. 72). Completion of the project is anticipated for next year.
