The Road Ahead
The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) has completed the first phase of the Birmingham Northern Beltline, a 52-mile, six lane corridor that will eventually stretch from I-59 in northeast Jefferson County to the I-459 interchange with I-20/59 near Bessemer.
Construction on the first phase, a 1.34 mile highway grade and drain project from SR 79 to SR 75, began in February 2014.
Work on the second phase, which consists of bridging this section, is preliminarily scheduled to begin in 2019. In the meantime, ALDOT will continue to monitor and maintain the work done thus far.
We hope you will visit this website periodically for any updates on the Beltline. Should you have any questions, please feel free to email us at your convenience.
ALDOT thanks you for your interest as we continue our mission of providing a safe, efficient and environmentally-sound Northern Beltline in Birmingham.
