I-65 Traffic Moves One Way, North
The process of turning Interstate 65 into a one-way highway is underway. State troopers and the Alabama Department of Transportation have begun placing orange barrels to block exits along the median.
All lanes of I-65 will be northbound from Stockton to Montgomery. In a live interview with a Mobile (WKRG) television station, Governor Bob Riley says the decision was made to quote -- "save lives."
This is the first time an Alabama interstate has reversed lanes. Traffic is heavy, but moving steadily at about 20 miles-per-hour on I-65 as evacuees move north to escape Hurricane Ivan.
Mobile Police also have closed the Bankhead Tunnel along the Mobile Causeway and Highway 90.
