DAPHNE, Ala. (WKRG) — The Eastern Shore Metropolitan Planning Organization on Wednesday passed a motion to continue discussions on an alternative plan for a new Mobile River bridge.
Last year, the same group effective killed the previous project, after public outcry over plans to toll the new bridge.
A new expressway concept has surfaced and board members believe there’s enough in the plans to take a closer look at alternative options for a bridge across Mobile Bay. Mayor Dane Haygood, who serves the citizens of Daphne, also serves as the chairman of the Eastern Shore MPO. He says the price tag for the new concept is almost cut in half. Of course, these are the very beginning stages of discussions.
The next Eastern Shore MPO meeting is scheduled for February 19th at 10 a.m.
