Monday, June 20, 2016, in the Fultondale area officials finally held the ribbon cutting to open the I-22 interchange with I-65. The Alabama Department of Transportation has worked on the final phase of the connector since 2010. Construction began on the first phase in Alabama in 1984. Construction began in Mississippi in 1978.

Alabama Governor Robert Bentley (R) said “This road provides a major traveling route through some rural areas of Alabama that until now have not had a major interstate within miles.
