Phase 1 of the Mobile TIGER grant construction project has begun on Broad Street. For the next two weeks, the inside lanes of Broad/Beauregard Street from Lawrence Street to State Street will be closed. The closure will enable workers to prepare the corridor for a future lane shift. It will remain in effect for two weeks until traffic is shifted onto the northbound lanes. Bishop State will host a media event planned by the City of Mobile to mark the start of construction. The event will take place Thursday, September 19, 2019, at 10 a.m. in front of the Fredericka G. Evans Cultural Centre/Gymnasium. According to the City of Mobile's website, the Department of Transportation awarded the City of Mobile a $14.5 million TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) grant on July 27, 2016, for the One Mobile: Reconnecting People, Work, and Play through Complete Streets initiative. The grant will revitalize some of the most widely-used corridors with new streets, bicycle lanes, sidewalks, drainage, and landscape architecture, drawing people to the heart of our community.
