An Alabama Department of Transportation resurfacing project is scheduled to begin next week on Interstate 10 from the east end of the Bayway to State Highway 59 in Baldwin County, according to a press release issued this morning.

The scope includes resurfacing the interstate lanes, shoulders, and ramps, as well as signal upgrades at the U.S. Highway 90/U.S. Highway 98, State Highway 181, and State Highway 59 intersections. The project length is 9.22 miles.

The speed limit through the project area will only be lowered during temporary lane closures, which are restricted to the overnight hours of 9 p.m. through 5 a.m. Sunday-Thursday. The project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2016.

Beginning Tuesday evening after 9 p.m., there will be temporary lane closures on the Bayway to install construction signage, weather permitting.

The contract was awarded to Mobile Asphalt Company, LLC, from Theodore, Alabama, whose bid of $14,831,751.19 was the lowest that met project requirements.
