Interstate 222 Alabama

Interstate 222 Alabama


Interstate 222 is a proposed 2.26 mile long freeway linking I-422, the planned Birmingham Northern Beltline, with I-22 east of their crossing in Graysville. Due to terrain and other environmental issues, a direct interchange between Interstate 22 and I-422 will not be constructed. Instead I-222 will provide connections between the two routes, tying into I-22 midway between Exits 89 and 91.

The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) petitioned the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) for the Interstate 222 designation on September 27, 2011 in conjunction with an application for Interstate 422. This was approved by the AASHTO Special Committee on US Route Numbering (SCOH Committee) on May 18, 2012. Right of Way acquisition for the stretch of I-422 between U.S. 78 and Mt. Olive Road (County Road 77) was initially anticipated for 2024 with potential construction in 2026.1 That stretch included the interchange with Interstate 222. Due to lack of funds, future construction of I-222 and I-422 at Graysville and Brookside is uncertain.
