Eastern Shore MPO wipes I-10 Bridge Project from Transportation Plan


SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WKRG) — Members of Eastern Shore Municipal Planning Organization have officially voted to remove the I-10 Bridge Project from the Transportation Infrastructure Plan (TIP).

You’ll remember late last month that it was the Eastern Shore MPO that essentially killed the project by voting against tolls.

State Auditor Jim Zeigler is urging toll opponents to attend to show their continued opposition and vigilance. According to AL.com, the unused bridge plan essentially becomes a vision for a future generation to reconsider sometime in the future and is an issue MPO’s on both sides of Mobile Bay will talk about. A survey is planned on a 25-year plan on what to do to improve transit across the bay.
