“A local road construction project between Huntsville and Madison has been connected to windshield damage on several cars.
A windshield repair company said it’s seen several drivers come in to get windshields repaired after traveling along a section of I-565 where repaving work is underway.
“We’ve had about seven people come in this far saying that basically a rock hit their windshield and the company would be willing to reimburse them if they paid to fix it,” said Mallory Krebs.
Krebs works at Auto Glass Now and she’s seen a lot of people come into the shop after driving on 565.
That’s because ALDOT just started a year-long resurfacing project just east of Intergraph Way.”

It seems that whenever a resurfacing project occurs motorists pay the price in more ways than one. Even when following another vehicle from a safe distance a small rock might hit your windshield. It’s one of the unfortunate aspects of roadway repair and construction. At least in this situation, the department of transportation is willing to pay for repairs of affected drivers.
