The BNB is an Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) project to build a Northern Beltline in Jefferson County. The 52-mile expressway would extend from Interstate 59/20 in Bessemer to Interstate 59 north of Trussville. The project for this new expressway is included in the Appalachian Development Highway Program.
This project—known locally as the Montgomery Outer Loop—marks the first of many future projects intended to extend I-85 west to I-65. An even longer-range plan calls for extending I-85 through West Alabama and connecting to I-59 near the Mississippi state line.
The CBD is an ALDOT project to rehabilitate bridges and improve capacity on Interstate 20/59 and access and to downtown Birmingham.
