Orange Beach Mayor Tony Kennon announced the Foley Beach Express Bridge, the toll bridge, closed on Tuesday, January 28 due to weather.
He said the sharp curve at the bottom of the bridge caused safety issues with the ice.
“Any amount of ice made it hard to negotiate that turn,” Kennon said.
Mayor Kennon said although he hasn’t heard of any reported outages, the community center is open until the threat subsides.
“We have a lot of snow birds down here so any seniors, we wouldn’t want them to be in a condo or anywhere long without heat,” Kennon said.
