The Alabama Department of Transportation released an update on the status of state roads this morning.

Portions of roads remained closed in six counties early this morning due to downed power lines and trees caused by Hurricane Dennis.

However, highway officials reopoened the Bankhead Tunnel in Mobile shortly after 6 a-m today.

Crews have cleared trees and are helping with traffic control in affected areas while local utility workers and officials begin repairs.

Most state routes are open this morning. Some isolated closures remain in effect in Wilcox, Perry, Clarke, Monroe, Autauga and Baldwin counties.

Road closings include:
