Holiday Travel Headaches

Holiday Travel Headaches

Posted: Updated:
GULF SHORES, Alabama -

If you don't like crowds or traffic jams- avoid South Baldwin County the next several days.

Tens of thousands of vacationers are heading to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach for the 4th of July holiday weekend.

Highway 59 will be bumper-to-bumper in many locations and in both the northbound and southbound lanes depending on time of travel.

Avoid 59 northbound between 10 and 2pm. Hotel/condo check-out time is 10am and thousands of families will be heading north and returning home after a stop for breakfast or lunch.

Avoid Highway 59 southbound between 2-7pm. Hotel/condo check-in time is 3pm.

Expect delays on I-10 through the tunnel in downtown Mobile and on the Bayway, as well.

Using the Foley Beach Express is another way to avoid Hwy 59 chaos, but expect possible delays near the toll bridge, too.
