Everyone knows I-59/20 is an absolute MESS, and nowhere more so than downtown Birmingham. The major thoroughfare is currently being widened to allow more traffic to safely travel through the Magic City. Part of ALDOT's plan includes replacing the I-59/20 bridge that runs through the heart of Birmingham.

The bridge was closed last month in preparation of a planned implosion, which you can view in the video above from al.com. Construction is still underway, with the new bridge expected to open in late 2020.
