In February of 2020, the Department of Transportation closed a portion of the north and southbound lanes on US Highway 231 near Laceys Spring, AL. Due to record rainfall, a large landslide and substantial cracks formed in the road which made it unsafe for traffic to utilize the roadway. Governor Kay Ivey has declared a State of Emergency that helps to fix this issue as soon as possible.
