DOT Closes Part of Mobile Causeway

The Alabama Department of Transportation announces that the U.S. 90/98 Causeway between Bankhead Tunnel and the Cochrane/Africatown Bridge is closed to all traffic except hazardous material and shipyard traffic and employees until further notice.

The closure is the result of a ruptured oil tank located along the Causeway. Coast Guard and environmental officials are dealing with the ruptured oil tank. Mobile police and ALDOT personnel are positioned at the tunnel and the bridge to handle traffic. Only trucks hauling hazardous material and shipyard traffic and employees will be allowed to pass traffic checkpoints.

The Cochrane Bridge is the designated route for trucks hauling hazardous material to bypass the Wallace Tunnels on Interstate 10.
