Portion of I-565 shutting down for blasting


A portion of I-565 in Madison will be closed on Thursday, Dec. 13 for blasting related to the new Town Madison development.

Blasting will happen at 2:00 p.m. between MM 10 and MM 11. As a precaution, Madison Police Department and Alabama State Troopers will be onsite to stop traffic in both directions on I-565 at a safe distance from the blast zone for approximately 10 minutes.

Drivers are advised to avoid this area if possible during this time.

If you can’t avoid it, be aware of the officers’ presence and follow their direction. Traffic will resume once the “all clear” is given.

The City of Madison says this should be the last blast for this portion of the project; however additional blasting may be required in the future.
