According to the Alabama Department of Transportation, Wiregrass Construction will start working on I-65 in northern Limestone County tonight.

Crews are working from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday.

The work is part of a $3,569,494 resurfacing project.

Once complete, the project will have resurfaced more than seven miles of I-65, from two miles south of the Thach Road interchange to the Tennessee state line.

Tonight, crews will patch the I-65 mainline.

Tomorrow, Wiregrass Construction will start milling and paving interchange ramps in the project area.

Wiregrass Construction is also the contractor on the current $15.4 million project to resurface 12.4 miles of I-65 between mile marker 339, north of the Tennessee River Bridge, and Exit 351.

Currently, their crews are working on the northbound roadway between Exit 347 and Exit 351 from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday.

In both of these project areas, speed limits are reduced to 50 miles per hour day and night.

The Alabama Department of Transportation is encouraging drivers to drive with caution and expect delays due to single lane closures.
