But what about the traffic around Uptown?
Well, there is that . . .
You’d have to be hiding under a rock to not know that much of Birmingham is in the throes of a long and colorful, crane-filled reconstructive surgery.
And, the Uptown area is in the midst of its own reconstruction because . . . the Protective Stadium is on its way!
What this means is that two blocks of 11th Avenue North and two blocks of 23rd Street North are permanently closed to make way for the stadium, which will soon sit on top of where they once were.
So here’s the deal: check out this awesome (and regularly upated) Know Before You Go page on The BJCC’s website, leave a little early, and you should be good.
