Use Beach Back Roads To Avoid Highway 59 Traffic

Use Beach Back Roads To Avoid Highway 59 Traffic

Posted: Updated:
GULF SHORES, Alabama -

If you're heading to Baldwin County's beaches this holiday weekend and want to save a little time- your GPS will tell you to use Highway 59.

But taking the direct route and using one of SW Alabama's most congested highways to one of the busiest beaches on the Gulf Coast is not always the "fastest" route.

There are a couple of back roads you can use to avoid some of the traffic chaos on 59.

I-10 EB drivers should get off at Exit 38 and head south on Highway 181 to Highway 98.

Before getting to Foley, turn south on Cty Rd 65. This back road eventually puts you back on Highway 59 and avoids heavy traffic in Foley.

Another way to avoid a substantial amount of Highway 59 traffic is by using the Foley Beach Express. 

If you're not interested in paying a seven dollar, round trip toll fee or need to get back to Gulf Shores- get off the Beach Express just before the toll booth and use Roscoe Road.

This back road will eventually connect you back to 59 near Jack Edwards Airport.
