The Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex today unveiled a series of animated maps and detailed directions to assist travelers with inbound and outbound routes during the I-59/20 Central Business District Interchange and Bridge Replacement Project. The maps are free and easy to share on social media.
The maps feature step-by-step directions to and from the BJCC, and highlight five unique routes using color-coded animation and voice-guided prompts. BJCC visitors can visit the BJCC website at to access a full-length video which includes all five routes, as well as individual videos for each specific route. The website also features a downloadable version of the detailed directions.
“We look forward to the completion of the new I-59/20 bridges, and the safer road conditions that everyone in our community will enjoy,” said Tad Snider, executive director and CEO of the BJCC. “The BJCC will remain open for the duration of the construction project, and will continue to host a wide range of exciting events throughout 2019. We hope our visitors will find these animated maps helpful in planning their trips and avoiding travel interruptions.”
The BJCC will share the maps through social media and email over the next 14 months, and will update the routes based on construction progress and changes. In addition to the animated maps, visitors can use their preferred navigation app for up-to-date routing information.
“The BJCC is committed to keeping our visitors informed throughout the bridge replacement project. We will strive to provide up-to-date information and innovative tools every step of the way,” said Snider. 
For additional information about routes, maps and events, visitors can go to the BJCC website at or to our social media channels.
