Lanes will be shutdown on US 31, I-459 in Hoover for roadwork

It could take longer to drive through parts of Hoover starting at 7 p.m. Sunday. That's when lanes will be closed on US 31 and I-459 for two separate road projects.

The outside lanes of US 31 from the I-459 interchange to the Jefferson/Shelby County Line will be closed. Crews will be expanding turn lanes, removing concrete island noses and installing concrete curbs and gutters. The work will be done overnight from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.. It's expected to be completed by Saturday.

Also at 7 p.m. Sunday, the inside lane of I-459 S from the US 31 interchange to Highway 150 will be closed for repaving, upgrades to the guardrails and shoulder grading. The work will be done overnight through Wednesday.

ALDOT is asking drivers to consider alternate routes.
