Progress on the Intracoastal Waterway Bridge

Jan 17

Preliminary construction of the new Waterway Bridge is underway, and traffic is anticipated to be flowing across the $52 million bridge by 2026.  So far, the majority of the progress made has been on site clearing and stabilization to prepare for the roadway items, with bridge substructure pile driving also getting into full swing. 

The next phases will include the bridge superstructure where you will see bridge decks and railing start to get poured,  as well as the installation of a roundabout where the new road ties to Canal Rd. 

Ultimately the toll-free bridge over the intracoastal waterway in Baldwin County is intended to alleviate the traffic congestion on Highway 59, support access to emergency services, and make it safer to evacuate in the event of a hurricane or other emergency.
