The Alabama Department of Transportation continues to develop plans for a new, safer U.S. Highway 98 in Mobile County. Project designs are being finalized with careful attention to the goals of improving safety, decreasing heavy traffic congestion, receiving environmental approvals, and providing for planned and regulated access.
When completed, the new Safe 98 will connect U.S. 98 at the Mississippi state line to I-65, allowing through-traffic to bypass heavy traffic congestion on the current highway.
The completion of this important project remains a high priority for ALDOT. Keeping you informed with timely information about Safe 98 is also a top priority. Please feel free to contact the Safe 98 Hotline number or send us an e-mail with your project-related questions or concerns. Contact information for the Safe 98 project team is located on this web page.
ALDOT thanks you for your interest and patience as we move forward with our mission of providing a safe, efficient and environmentally-sound transportation network across Alabama.
