Overton Road Sections Closed
Motorists who travel on Overton Road in Mountain Brook might have to find a new route for the next few days.
A temporary closure of the Overton Road intersection with U.S. 280 started at 8 p.m. on Oct. 25 and will continue for about nine days, according to a news release from the Alabama Department of Transportation.
While the construction project is underway, motorists can’t turn left from U.S. 280 outbound onto Overton Road or turn right from U.S. 280 inbound on Overton Road.
Traffic will also be closed to the right turn from Overton Road onto U.S. 280 outbound and to the U-turn from U.S. 280 outbound onto U.S. 280 inbound.
At 7 p.m. each night during the construction project, there will be single lane closures to the eastbound and westbound travel lanes on U.S. 280 near Overton Road and double lane closures to the eastbound and westbound travel lanes on U.S. 280 near the Overton Road intersection beginning at 8 p.m. each night.
ALDOT officials are encouraging those who travel on Overton Road to access U.S. 280 to follow the posted detour route to access the busy highway at an alternate location.
In the release, ALDOT also reminded motorists that U-turns are prohibited at the intersections of Rocky Ridge and Green Valley Roads.
Those who usually use the outbound U-turn at Overton will be required to use the Pumphouse Road interchange as an alternate route.
ALDOT officials said traffic delays are expected during the temporary closure.
