DOT ready to bid I-20 widening in St. Clair 

State transportation officials say they hope to hire a contractor in January to widen the last eight miles of the interstate through St. Clair County. The work, expected to begin this spring, will be from the Brompton to the Eden exit.  Rumbling will come from having to bring down mountainous terrain on each side of the interstate, forcing the expressway to be closed periodically in both directions.  All I-20 traffic will be halted for 20 minutes while dynamiting is done. Some 49,700 vehicles travel that section of the interstate daily, according to DOT. Birmingham Division Engineer Brian Davis said he does not know how many months the blasting will occur. The work proposal gives the contractor the option of closing the interstate for blasting every day except holidays or Talladega race days. The state is limiting the blasting to between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. DOT officials say they will set up a hot line for motorists to call for updates on the I-20 work. The blasting clause will impose penalties on the contractor if the interstate is closed for longer than 20 minutes on the side where the terrain is being removed, or for more than 10 minutes on the opposite side of the interstate. The DOT will monitor the time. The contract includes high penalties if damage is done to the interstate. The work is expected to cost $50 million to $60 million and could take two to three years to complete. The widening work, which includes median barriers, will make I-20 six lanes through St. Clair County. The work was in response to the high number of deaths on the old four-lane interstate, which St. Clair residents dubbed "Death Valley." From 1998 to 2002, there were 43 deaths on the interstate. There were three in 2004, one in 2005, and four so far this year, state troopers report. Also planned next year is the replacement of the I-20 Coosa River bridge linking St. Clair to Talladega County. The bridge, which is 1.5 miles long, is expected to cost about $10 million to replace.
