Foley City Council discusses Airport Road expansion

A $1.5 million project to extend Airport Road to Baldwin County Road 24 produced extended discussion Tuesday between two residents who have concerns over the project and the mayor and city council.

The Airport Road extension, which is in the process of being bid out, is aimed at removing truck traffic from Fern Avenue and helping out the B.F. Goodrich plant. King called it a “wonderful thing” to get trucks off Fern, but also spoke of the possibility of “catastrophic crashes” that could occur by funneling tractor-trailers onto 24.
