Traffic Tip of the Week

Kickoff is at 7:00 p.m. for the LSUgame. {}Traffic will be heavy exiting Birmingham between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.{}This can cause a significant{}traffic backup of up to six miles around exit 79 where I-20/59 goes from three lanes totwo. {}Please prepare accordingly and possibly try these two alternatives:

  • Utilize exit 89 at the Mercedes plant to access Highway 11 westbound. {} Highway 11 turns into University Blvd., and it will bring you directly into campus.{}{}
  • Utilize exit 100 to access Highway 216 westbound. {}Highway 216 turns into 15th St. (Veterans Memorial Pkwy.) once you arrive in Tuscaloosa.
