According to the release, beginning tonight and lasting until Thursday, state troopers will conduct rolling roadblocks between Exits 144 and 153, from 7-7:10 p.m. in the eastbound lanes and from 7-7:20 p.m. in the westbound lanes, for blasting (weather permitting). On-ramps to I-20 will be closed at Exit 147 eastbound and at Exit 152 westbound during the rolling roadblocks.
The work is part of ALDOT’s Progress 20 project to widen the last four-lane segment of I-20 in St. Clair County, between Eden and Brompton. The scheduled completion date on the project is Oct. 1, 2012.
A reduced speed limit of 45 mph is in effect throughout the work zone. Motorists are urged 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. State troopers will control traffic and strictly enforce speed limits.
