MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. -- South Craft Highway bridge is temporarily closed at the city line between the City of Prichard and the City of Mobile.  Traffic is being detoured around the closure using East Prichard Avenue, South Wilson Ave and Saint Stephens Road.


Construction includes replacing the old bridge and adding a new pedestrian bridge adjacent to the road bridge.  The project is expected to be complete by May 2022.


This project, Bridge Replacement on South Craft Highway over Toulmins Spring Branch, is funded by the 2016 Pay-As-You-Go program. Pay-As-You-Go is a method of financing road and bridge improvements with no new taxes and no borrowed money. Funds are collected in advance of each road program. Beginning in 1977, Mobile County’s Pay-As-You-Go has funded more than $933 million in local road improvements and has been approved by voters each of the 18 times it has appeared on a ballot.
