Bayway Tolls

Those on both sides of the bay with questions about the new Mobile River Bridge and Bayway project have a chance to get answers.

ALDOT will be asking you what you think tonight and Thursday at public meetings in both Mobile and Baldwin Counties.

We’re told the two billion dollar project will include a new six lane bridge across Mobile River, new Bayway bridges, and seven modified interchanges.

With construction set to start next year, officials say they hope to address their plans for all electronic tolling, the future role of the Wallace Tunnel, and how the traffic patterns, new bridge, and Bayway will look.

Project officials say they are anxious to move forward with plans, especially as traffic begins to pick up during summer months.

“We look at incidents like last week and also in March when we have trucks overturn in the Wallace Tunnel and how that impacts traffic and not just on I-10, but all across the bay, and its important for drivers and commuters and folks on their way to vacation to get across the bay safely and quickly,” said Allison Gregg, Public Information Officer for the Mobile River Bridge and Bayway Project.

The first of the two public meetings is tonight at the Spanish Fort Town Center, and will be from 4:30-9 pm.

There will be another meeting at the Mobile Civic Center Thursday night from 4:30 to 8 pm.
