Blue Arrow  Construction Updates Follows:

January 22, 2014 - Although the project is almost complete the speed limit temporarily remains at 55 mph through the work zone.

June 13, 2013 - Eastbound traffic is traveling in the center and right lanes. Westbound traffic is remains in contraflow from mile marker 186-185. From mile marker 185 to the west end of project traffic is still shifted to the inside lane and inside shoulder while paving continues on the center and outside lanes. Westbound traffic is scheduled to be placed on the center and outside lanes from mile marker 185 to the west end of project Saturday, June 15 beginning around midnight. After the Westbound traffic is placed on the center and outside lanes, the inside shoulders of both east and west bound roadways will be paved.

April 9, 2013 - The Alabama Department of Transportation’s Progress 20 project to repave and construct additional lanes on Interstate 20 from west of the HJ Bentley Parkway Bridge east of Snow Creek Bridge in Oxford continues to move forward.

Westbound traffic from Mile Marker 186.0 to Mile Marker 184.0 is currently shifted into contraflow, meaning the two lanes of traffic on the westbound roadway is split between the newly constructed inside, westbound and eastbound lanes, separated by the permanent median barrier wall. From Mile Marker 184.0 to Mile Marker 181.5, westbound traffic will remain in the newly constructed inside lane and inside shoulder. Westbound traffic wishing to exit at Exit 185 onto State Route 21 must use the right lane at Mile Marker 185.5.

Eastbound traffic from Mile Marker 181.5 to mile marker 184.5 will remain on the inside shoulder and inside lane. From Mile Marker 184.5 to Mile Marker 186.0, the traffic is placed on the newly constructed eastbound outside lanes.

Feb. 7, 2013 - The work originally scheduled to begin at 8 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 7 has be rescheduled to Saturday, Feb. 9, weather permitting. Westbound traffic from Mile Marker 186.0 to Mile Marker 184.0 will be shifted into contraflow, meaning the two lanes of traffic on the westbound roadway will be split between the newly constructed inside, westbound and eastbound lanes, separated by the permanent median barrier wall. From Mile Marker 184.0 to Mile Marker 181.5, westbound traffic will remain in the newly constructed inside lane and inside shoulder.

Feb. 5, 2013 - PROGRESS 20 Announces Lane Shifts in Talladega/Calhoun Counties

The Alabama Department of Transportation’s Progress 20 project to repave and construct additional lanes on Interstate 20 from west of the HJ Bentley Parkway Bridge east of Snow Creek Bridge in Oxford continues to move forward.

Beginning at 8 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 5, eastbound traffic from Mile Marker 181.5 to mile marker 184.5 will remain on the inside shoulder and inside lane. From Mile Marker 184.5 to Mile Marker 186.0, the contraflow will be removed and traffic will be placed on the newly constructed eastbound outside lanes. This eastbound traffic shift will not disrupt the traffic flow of the eastbound ramps at Exit 185.

Beginning at 8 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 7, Westbound traffic from Mile Marker 186 to Mile Marker 184 will be shifted into contraflow, meaning the two lanes of traffic on the westbound roadway will be split between the newly constructed inside, westbound and eastbound lanes, separated by the permanent median barrier wall. From Mile Marker 184 to Mile Marker 181.5, westbound traffic will remain in the newly constructed inside lane and inside shoulder. Westbound traffic wishing to exit at Exit 185 onto State Route 21 must use the right lane at Mile Marker 185.5.

The speed limit in the contraflow area will be reduced to 45 mph. The speed limit in the remainder of the project will remain at 55 mph at this time.

Motorists can expect delays during the lane shifts and are requested 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.
