This photo was taken shortly after 6:30 p.m. Thursday evening as ALDOT crews took a closer look at the pothole that developed in the center lane of I-20/59 eastbound just after Carraway Blvd. (and shortly before the 31st St. N. exit). Yes, that’s concrete you see hanging from the roadway, though it doesn’t quite tell the whole story.
The hole developed in a section of the interstate slated to be replaced as part of proposed plans by ALDOT. The Birmingham City Council is already scheduled to meet with ALDOT officials next Wednesday beginning at 4 p.m. at the agency’s offices about those plans and will most likely bring up concerns raised by groups including Rethink 20/59 and area business leaders.
