I-65 bridge work to start Tuesday; delays possible

Routine maintenance on the southbound Interstate 65 bridge over the Tennessee River has been rescheduled to begin Tuesday and continue for the following two days.

The work was originally scheduled to begin this week, but rainy weather forced the Alabama Department of Transportation to reschedule it for next week.

Work will be in progress 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Aug. 27 on the southbound bridge between the Huntsville/Decatur and Priceville exits.

One lane will be closed. Motorists are advised to expect delays and plan accordingly.
