The Greenbrier interchange project will officially start Sunday night in Limestone County.
First, people can expect the service road between Mooresville and Greenbier to be re-paved. Then the inside shoulder of interstate 565 eastbound will be paved. This will prepare traffic to be shifted from the outside lane.
Gina Chandler said her husband drives I-565 and takes the Greenbrier exit everyday for work.
"That's going to be a lot of construction and a lot of headache for people that's traveling that," Chandler said. "Hopefully it'll all work out."
She's worried about the next part of the project after Highway 20 is paved. Once traffic is shifted, the eastbound ramp off Mooresville Road will be closed, and drivers traveling eastbound to Greenbrier will be detoured to Exit 2, Mooresville road. Drivers then will get onto Highway 20 and then back onto Greenbrier.
This project is supposed to improve traffic flow. There are many 18-wheelers that travel through I-565 because of the industrial jobs on Greenbrier.
The Alabama Department of Transportation tells WAAY 31 they don't expect issues with traffic flow on I-565, but there could be delays on Greenbrier road and Highway 20.
The project should be completed by late 2019. The interchange improvements will cost $10.3 million. Starting on Sunday, crews will be working from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays.
