Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Traffic Reporter "Captain" Ray Allen says the closure is expected to begin at 10 p.m. tonight.

"The westbound lanes will be closed for a few hours and then they will shift to the eastbound lanes to do the same thing," Allen said.

ALDOT has until 5 a.m. to complete the work; however, the contractor does not anticipate it will take that long. Access to the interstate will not be affected at this time.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
