Schillinger Road Project Underway

Schillinger Road Project Underway

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE COUNTY - Construction began Monday on the widening of Schillinger Road between Howell’s Ferry and Moffett Roads.

The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) is managing this project and has required its road builder to keep a driving lane open on Schillinger Road at all times during construction and to provide access at all times to all businesses and residences along the route. 

Mobile County has partnered with ALDOT to improve the roadway through the Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program (ATRIP), a federal program that provides 80 percent funding to the county’s 20 percent.  The $30 million project will widen Schillinger from two to five lanes.

The state estimates the project will take 30 months for completion. Once completed, the roadway will accommodate much higher traffic volume and will significantly ease traffic flow through the area. 

If you have questions about this project, please call the Alabama Department of Transportation’s Construction Office at 251-470-8250. 

Mobile County appreciates the patience of motorists while this project is underway and encourages caution in the construction area.
