Mobile, Ala. – The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) will resume construction of the US-98 and SR-158 extension projects in Mobile County beginning with the Big Creek Bridge Extension Project on Sept. 11.

The project scope will include adding an additional 1,400 linear feet of bridge on US 98 over Big Creek. The bridge will be equipped with a runoff containment system and tall barrier rail for water quality and watershed protection purposes. The $5.5 million project was awarded to Tanner Inc. from Laurel, Miss. and is expected to be completed by fall 2018.

The Big Creek Bridge extension is one of seven projects to complete the two-lane facility from the Mississippi State Line to Schillinger Road. The second section, beginning east of Lott Road to Schillinger Road, is scheduled to begin early 2018. ALDOT anticipates construction of the two-lane route to be completed by 2023.
