Comments received regarding the Alabama Department of Transportation's proposal to
close the exit ramp (130B) from I-20 to 1st Avenue North are currently under review.
Efforts to advance this project as proposed are currently suspended. Additional information will be gathered and studied to
determine the feasibility of modifying the travel pattern at this location.
Thank you for your participation.
Location: Birmingham (Jefferson County)
The proposed project will include resurfacing the project corridor, approximately 10 miles along I-20 between Exit 130 and Exit 140.
Based on current traffic movements, the proposal is to permanently close the I-20 Eastbound Exit Ramp 130B to 1st Avenue north. The
current striping on I-20 Eastbound will be extended for approximately 1250 feet to accommodate the merging traffic onto I-20 Eastbound. Construction of the proposed project is to be completed under normal traffic operations with intermittent lane closures. The ramp at
Exit 130B is proposed for permanent closure with barricades.
The purpose of this public involvement meeting is to inform the public of the design features for the project. The Alabama Department
of Transportation (ALDOT) is interested in obtaining input from the people who use this route.

ALDOT is conducting online public involvement for the proposed project. All comments regarding this project must be submitted
