Traffic advisory: Road/ramp closures on I-565 EB Exit 7 Ramp and Madison Boulevard

Necessary during new I-565 Interchange construction project

Alabama Dept. of Transportation

MADISON — Weather permitting, the Exit 7 ramp of Interstate 565 East and a portion of Madison Boulevard west of County Line Road will be closed beginning Wednesday, Jan 15, for construction of the new I-565 interchange at County Road 3 (County Line Road) in Madison.


This closure is expected to be in place for approximately nine months. During construction, motorists can expect reduced work zone speed limits, ramp/lane/shoulder closures and service

road closures.


Construction of the new interchange, including building additional ramps to the existing underpass and relocating a portion of State Route 20 (Madison Boulevard), is expected to be completed in May 2015.  


When completed, the project will provide motorists full access to/from I-565 to Madison Boulevard and County Line Road. Additionally, drivers in the vicinity of the City of Madison and Limestone and Madison counties will be afforded another access point in addition to the Wall Triana Highway which currently experiences very heavy traffic.  


Motorists are requested to consider using alternate routes, adjust arrival/departure times, observe work zone speed limits and other work zone signs, and use extreme caution in this area. ALDOT thanks motorists for their patience during this construction to improve Alabama’s roadways.
