If you are traveling to the Alabama Gulf Coast from the West, you are no stranger to the nightmare that is I-10 through Mobile, Alabama. In the summertime, it feels like there is no good time to drive that last stretch of Interstate. Sure, you could make the drive in the dead of night and beat the heat and traffic, but that makes it challenging to reach your vacation house or condo before the 3 p.m. check-in time. It is all worth it in the end when you pull up to your final destination and feel the warm beach sun and breeze kiss your skin. Then you have to go home and you are confronted with the dreaded drive back on The Bayway and through The Wallace Tunnel. It is a daunting task but always worth the memories made while on vacation in Gulf Shores / Orange Beach.
Gulf Shores Rentals, Inc. has been keeping up with the news about ALDOTs progress with the Mobile River Bridge and Bayway Project which will give the area much needed relief to the always present traffic crisis. You can also follow ALDOT Mobile Area on Twitter to stay up-to-date with the 411 on the traffic situation in the Mobile area. Although the project is only in the very early stages, hope is within sight for a stress-free drive to your relaxing beach vacation.
