Bankhead Tunnel to get “vibrant” makeover

Local News

The Bankhead Tunnel in Downtown Mobile will get a “vibrant” makeover next week. According to a twitter post on the Alabama Department of Transportation Twitter account, the tunnel will close during overnight hours for a new paint job.

The closure shouldn’t have a big impact on daytime commutes for drivers traveling between Mobile and Baldwin Counties. Crews will close the tunnel from 9:00 pm – 4:00 am, beginning Monday, July 9. Crews expect to wrap up the work during the week. The Wallace Tunnel will still be open to traffic.
