MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – The Pay-As-You-Go project to widen Schillinger Road South, between Cottage Hill Road and Halls Mill Creek, will finally begin Wednesday, May 21. It will take approximately two years to complete.
The $9.6 million project will take the existing two lanes of Schillinger Road South, and add three additional lanes, along with a curb and gutter consistent with the section of roadway north of it.
This project will also include constructing a new bridge over Halls Mill Creek, which will replace the existing box culvert.
Although there will be temporary lane shifts involved with the construction, Schillinger Road South will not be closed. Motorists are asked to be cautious because of some traffic inconveniences, reduced speed limits and temporary modifications to driveways.
