Accident shuts down I-10 Eastbound Bayway

March 24, 2019
At around 9:36 p.m. on Saturday, Mar 23, a 2000 Mitsubishi Galant was eastbound on the Bayway at the 33.7-mile marker in Baldwin County, experienced mechanical issues and stopped in the inside emergency lane.  A male got out and walked to the front of the vehicle to work under the hood.  While working on the vehicle, it was struck from behind by a 2016 Ford Fusion.  The collision caused the male to be thrown over the bridge wall and into the water below.  ALEA Marine Patrol Troopers were notified and responded to the scene where the victim was retrieved from the water and returned to land (he was actually checked by medics and returned to the scene with minor injury!).  Both lanes of I-10 are open and moving at this time.

Baldwin County beach road safety work near completion | WPMI

March 21, 2019
ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (WPMI) — Motorists in Orange Beach are wondering - Is it a construction zone or not? Work on State Highway 182 or Perdido Beach Boulevard is now complete but the lower speed limit signs are still up. The speed limit here is a little twisted. What should be 45 mph has been 35 for months now and it may be that way until right before Memorial Day -- and that's in May.
