In general, ALDOT has taken pretty good care of 565, or maybe it just didn't need anything since the last resurfacing several years ago. But now, due in part I'm sure to the practically non-stop rain we've had lately, it's developing several shallow potholes ... "shallow" meaning not a real pothole, but rather the 1-inch or so wear layer coming loose and going away. They'd be ahead of the game if they would repair them right away before the situation deteriorates into something really expensive.

I don't remember any resurfacing of I565 since I moved here in 2005. From what they are doing at the Greenbrier road exit, it seems there are at least 3 layers of asphalt. It's a quality stretch of interstate, but yes they probably should be looking at resurfacing it. I'm sure parts of it will be resurfaced since there is now work going on at Greenbrier and at Town Madison.

Time flies, so the resurfacing may have been longer ago than I remember, but I'm pretty sure it was this century. The "potholes" I was talking about are in the "in town" portion, basically where it becomes 8 lanes, then eastward. It's a minor issue now, but could become more major if not repaired. It's the very top "wear layer" that's coming off, and is only an inch or so thick.

It has been resurfaced in some areas since 2005 for certain. I remember driving through milled portions of it when I was in college in a car that I got on 2011. Is SeeClickFix available for 565 potholes? As in maybe they have a pipeline to pass on the message. Roads and proactive upkeep don't seem to be a thing here.

The last time that it was entirely resurfaced was definitely before 2010. More like 2003 really.

Believe you guys are a good bit off in your recollections as about 16 miles of the 22-mile I-565 interstate spur were resurfaced in 2011 by Wiregrass Construction along with another section (bids say 5 miles but that doesn't jive with mile markers listed) in Limestone county in 2012 by Good Hope Contracting.


Here's a snippet from 2012 quality in construction awards:

WIREGRASS CONSTRUCTION CO. INC. OF HUNTSVILLE, ALA.
• Resurfacing of almost 16 miles of I-565 in Huntsville, Ala. After a severe tornado in the area, company employees helped in cleanup efforts until work could resume. Wiregrass Construction Co. overcame challenges such as rescheduling out-of-town contractors to produce a smooth, high-quality asphalt pavement.

Here's the low bid sheet from January 2011 ALDOT bid letting which indicates paving from Limestone county line to US-72 intersection.

PLANING, RESURFACING AND TRAFFIC STRIPE

FROM I-565 TO WEST OF CR-393 IN HUNTSVILLE

Here's the low bid sheet from August 2012 ALDOT bid letting which indicates paving of an additional section of I-565 in Limestone County.
