They do use them...when there is an ozone alert.
I am a surveyor and a lot of times I am working on I-65 between Alabaster and the Shelby County Airport, and those overhead signs are never
used to inform motorists that surveyors are ahead and may be crossing traffic lanes, even though we call ALDOT when we arrive to the job and when we leave. We are provided with smaller portable message signs to inform motorists of our presence, but the big overhead signs either blink or say something about the ozone alert.
Maybe when Birmingham gets a traffic center those signs can be put to good use. A large part of the ITS improvements have not been constructed yet.
