How far has construction of US Highway 78 future Interstate 22 progressed between Jasper Alabama and Birmingham Alabama?
I was on it today (4-3-08) and noticed they have opened another
section recently. From Industrial Prkwy, in Jasper, to where the
new section meets US 78 in Graysville. At that point it dumps you
back onto US 78.
I may see this thing completed before I die yet.
I was on US 78 yesterday (3/20/10), and this portion has now
been completed to Coalburg Rd in the Birmingham area about 2.5
miles short of reaching I-65. From that point, it is about 2 miles
down to Daniel Payne Dr and then about 0.75 miles to I-65. It
greatly improves the trip through Birmingham.
