Interstate 65 near mile marker 319 is closed as crews repair a bridge at the location. A crash involving a tractor-trailer hauling construction equipment damaged the bridge around 6 p.m. Wednesday evening. No injuries occurred, but the roadway was damaged.
Traffic heading southbound on I-65 should detour off exit 322 onto East Pike Road, head south on U.S. 31 and then enter back onto exit 318. Officials say the bridge remains structurally sound, but due to repairs the southbound roadway will most likely remain closed until Friday at noon. Decatur Police say to expect heavy traffic and if possible to avoid Highway 67 altogether.
Currently, no traffic is allowed South of exit 325.
