The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) is well underway with the SR 182 Median Improvements and Beautification Project in Orange Beach from West Loop Road to the Cotton Bayou Beach Access.

The project scope includes removal of the center turn lane from the existing roadway and installing raised landscaped medians: implementing signalized median U-turns to reduce the number of intersection conflict points; creating designated pedestrian crosswalks at signalized intersections;  and widening, restriping and resurfacing the one-mile corridor. Landscaping of the medians will begin after the project is completed, which is scheduled for summer 2017 and will be performed by the City of Orange Beach.

Work will be restricted to the overnight hours of 9 pm to 9 am Sunday through Thursday beginning March 5th through April 15th and will resume after May 25th, to accommodate spring break and peak travel seasons.
