I-65 SOUTHPORT PROJECT BEGINS THIS WEEK
A $40 million construction project on I-65 will begin this week. The project will create new lanes to allow drivers to enter at Southport Road and exit onto I-465 without merging onto I-65. A flyover ramp will replace the current loop ramp at the I-465 westbound entrance. The project is expected to ease traffic in the busy area for southside commuters. On a typical day, more than 100,000 drivers pass through the interchange.
