Foley widening project to require road closing

As crews work to create a five-lane throughway between Alabama 59 and the Foley Beach Express, Baldwin County 20 will be closed for much of the weekend during construction.

The road between Alabama 59 and Juniper Street will shut down at 6 a.m. Saturday. Work is scheduled to be completed by around noon Sunday, Wendell “Butch” Stokes, city engineer, said Thursday. The closing had been scheduled for last weekend, but was postponed to avoid having the project rained out.

While the road is closed, traffic will be detoured onto Riviera Boulevard and Juniper Street. Baldwin County 20 is south of the Tanger Outlet Center.
