HOOVER, Ala. -- The Alabama Department of Transportation will have two lanes of Interstate 459 southbound in Hoover closed over the weekend for road repairs.

Traffic began to back up toward the Acton Road exit around 2 p.m. Saturday, and ALDOT says the work is expected to cause "major delays" on for motorists using I-459 South and the merging ramps from I-65.

ALDOT also announced several other closures on various portions of interstates and highways in Birmingham. Read details below.

Drivers are being asked to use an alternate route, if possible, otherwise it's recommended that you adjust your estimated time of travel.

Details of the I-459 South lane closure/work:

The I-459 southbound two outside (right) lanes and shoulder will be closed in the area of the I-65 ramps leading onto I-459 southbound, for concrete pavement repairs.

The I-459 southbound inside (left) lane will remain open to traffic. This work is being scheduled during the weekend due to repairs requiring the two I-459 southbound outside (right) thru traffic lanes being closed, and also due to the extended time required to remove the deteriorated concrete pavement; to place new concrete and allow adequate time for the concrete to cure properly before reopening the travel lanes to traffic.

Southbound I-459 traffic should consider using an alternate route detour as this work is expected to cause major delays along I-459 southbound and the ramps merging from I-65 onto I-459 southbound.

I-459 North lane closures/work:

Duration:  6 p.m., Apr. 13 through 6 a.m., Apr. 14

Closure:  The northbound outside and center lanes of I-459 from south of the Grants Mill Road Interchange (milepost 27.0) to the US 11 Interchange (milepost 32.0) will be closed to perform paving operations. The same procedure will be utilized the following four nights - thru Friday, Apr. 18 at 6 a.m.

I-65 North lane closures/work:

Duration:  7 p.m., Apr. 13 through 6 a.m., Apr. 16

Closure:  There will be double lane closures On I-65 NB from Daniel Payne Drive (milepost 264) to Walkers Chapel Road (Exit 264) for asphalt milling and overlay at this location. 

I-65 South lane closures/work:

Duration:  Apr. 11-14

Closure:  There will be lane closures from Walkers Chapel Road (milepost 269) to Daniel Payne Drive (Exit 264), for asphalt milling and overlay at this location. Traffic interruption times will be between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. on week days and 7 p.m. and 10 a.m. on weekends.

Hwy. 31 North lane closure/work:

Duration:  8 a.m. until 4 p.m., Apr. 12

Closure:  The US-31 northbound outside (right) travel lane and shoulder will be closed to provide adequate space for equipment and personnel to remove boulders, rocks and mud, resulting from the recent landslide. This work will continue next week dependent on weather conditions and work progress.
