Exit Changes on I-565: New Greenbrier Ramp to Open; Detour for Eastbound Mooresville Exit

There are upcoming changes at two exits on Interstate 565 in Limestone County, the Alabama Department of Transportation announced.

The new eastbound Exit 3 off-ramp from I-565 to Greenbrier Road and Swancott Road will open Wednesday. On Wednesday night, barriers will temporarily close the eastbound ramps at Exit 2 (Mooresville Road).

Eastbound traffic to and from Mooresville Road will be detoured to the Greenbrier interchange. The closure is expected to remain in place about one month.

The $10.3 million modifications project at the Greenbrier interchange is in final stages of work. The ramp closures at Mooresville road are part of the $14.3 million widening and resurfacing of Interstate 565 in Limestone County that began this week.

Reed Contracting is the contractor on both projects.

The I-565 project, the first major project funded by the Rebuild Alabama Act, will resurface more than seven miles of I-565 from just west of Exit 1 (Interstate 65) to just west of Exit 7 (County Line Road) after widening some sections of roadway to expand the interstate to three travel lanes in each direction. Work requiring single-lane closures may occur between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., but two travel lanes will remain open in each direction between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.
