Currently Under Construction
The Road Ahead
The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) has moved into the construction phase of the Birmingham Northern Beltline, a 52-mile, six lane corridor that will stretch from I-59 in northeast Jefferson County to the I-459 interchange with I-20/59 near Bessemer.
Construction on the first phase of the project, a 1.34 mile highway from SR 79 to SR 75, began in February 2014.
We hope you will visit this website often to check the progress of the Beltline. Should you have any questions, please feel free to email or call us on the project's dedicated hotline.
ALDOT thanks you for your interest as we move forward with our mission of providing a safe, efficient and environmentally-sound Northern Beltline in Birmingham.
Weve Found A Few Good Volunteers
Feedback from the community is an important aspect of the project. One of the most vital communication outlets is the Community Outreach Group (COG), a volunteer group of private citizens that asks questions, gets answers and offers suggestions directly to ALDOT while relaying information back to other members of the community.
The first COG orientation meeting was held on March 13, 2014. Go to the Community Involvement page for more details.
