20/59

Gina Yu,WBHM

Construction is underway on the contentious Interstate 20/59 project. The ALDOT plan to replace aging bridges on the interstate through downtown Birmingham began with the permanent closure of the 17th Street exit off I-20/59 northbound. The project has the city’s business community concerned as investors and developers work to revitalize the area in and around downtown Birmingham. We talk more about that in this week’s Magic City Marketplace with Ty West, editor of the Birmingham Business Journal.

Birmingham is big business and small. But whatever the size of the operation, the marketplace is connected by people who have to grapple with numbers and projections and spin. We try and slice through the psychobabble that can be business news with a weekly discussion of who's up and who's down, why the market reacts a certain way or what a business closing or opening means to you.
