Carriers who frequently travel through downtown Birmingham, Alabama in the United States should plan for a 12+ month closure of the I-59/20 bridge.
If the closure proceeds on schedule, the interstate would reopen in March 2020 with a full completion date of November 2020. Static detour maps are posted on ALDOT, but with Content Tools at your fingertips you can plan ahead of time, avoiding the area all together.
