Weather permitting, all northbound traffic on I-65 between Interstate 565 and Athens will be detoured onto the Exit 347 ramps from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Traffic will be rerouted to the off-ramp and across Huntsville Brownsferry Road to the on-ramp back to I-65 northbound so workers can remove temporary safety measures from the interstate.

The $2.83 million Rebuild Alabama project with contractor Miller & Miller is focused on the widening the Huntsville Brownsferry Road overpass.

Construction of a related $13.3-million Rebuild Alabama project to add lanes on Huntsville Brownsferry Road from U.S. 31 to I-65 began in September.
