Location: I-20 Eastbound and Westbound Lanes in Jefferson County
Beginning Monday, April 8 at midnight, weather permitting Phase II of the project will initially close the eastbound lanes of I-20 from exit 130 to exit 136 and is expected to last approximately 90 days. To avoid lengthy travel delays, motorists are encouraged to use the signed local detours: Exiting I-20 East from I-20/I-59 South, take I-59 North to Exit 137 to I-459 South. Take I-459 south to Exit 29 to I-20 East.
Details: Once the eastbound lanes are completed, the westbound lanes will close and a detour route will be used. A $30,000 per day incentive/disincentive is included in the contract with the bonus to the contractor calculated upon completion.
Plans are to do asphalt patching repairs on both eastbound and westbound lanes of I-20, which will involve having various lane closures from the I-20/ I-459 Interchange to the 1st Leeds Exit (Bass Pro Shop). Following the patching of both the eastbound and westbound lanes, they will be milled for slope correction and paved with asphalt binder, asphalt wearing surface and will then be restriped.
