Mobile River Bridge
The I-10 Mobile River Bridge and Bayway Widening project is a proposal to increase the capacity of I-10 by constructing a new six-lane bridge with 215 feet of Air Draft Clearance (ADC) across the Mobile River and widening the existing I-10 bridges across Mobile Bay from four to eight lanes. The proposed project would be located in Mobile and Baldwin Counties, Alabama.
Birmingham Northern Beltline (BNB)
The BNB is an Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) project to build a Northern Beltline in Jefferson County. The 52-mile expressway would extend from Interstate 59/20 in Bessemer to Interstate 59 north of Trussville. The project for this new expressway is included in the Appalachian Development Highway Program.
Montgomery Outer Loop
This project—known locally as the Montgomery Outer Loop—marks the first of many future projects intended to extend I-85 west to I-65. An even longer-range plan calls for extending I-85 through West Alabama and connecting to I-59 near the Mississippi state line.
Central Business District (CBD) Project
The CBD is an ALDOT project to rehabilitate bridges, improve capacity on Interstate 20/59, and improve access to and from downtown Birmingham.
