The Alabama Department of Transportation has announced the closure of a few lanes in a section of I-59 southbound on Friday. ALDOT says the section is the "Interstate 59 southbound outside (right) three travel lanes and shoulder, and also the southbound entrance ramp from 18th Street." The section closed at 9:30 a.m. and will reopen around 5 p.m.

The closure is due to emergency concrete bridge deck repairs.

ALDOT asks drivers to adjust arrival/departure times, observe work zone speed limits and to use extreme caution in the area.
