Our Future

Mobile Master Plan: An artist rendering showing a view of Civic Center Arena looking north. This mixed use development utilizes zoning from the Downtown Development Code, passed by the Mobile City Council in May 2014. Our future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow.
The Alabama Department of Transportation will be modifying the I-10 interchanges from Texas Street to the West Tunnel entrance. (Project number DPI-AL06 (900)). The purpose of the proposed modifications are to improve traffic flow and reduce the accident rate on the western approach to the Wallace Tunnel. The project will consist of removing existing structure and new construction. 

The circular ramps currently connecting Water Street to I-10 (seen in yellow) will be removed. 
New ramps from I-10 to Water Street will be positioned at Canal Street.  You will also be able to access   I-10 in both east and west directions from Water Street at Canal Street.

Both the Mobile River Bridge project and the Wallace Tunnel project are under the direction of :

"The Future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow"
Church Street East helped put the lid on Walter Energy's Blue Creek Coal Terminal. This coal terminal would have piled 360,000 metric tons of coal just outside our doorstep, but ran into serious opposition from the community including Church Street East. Had Walter Energy been successful in their push, the terminal would have been operational for forty years. Our future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow.  
The I-10 Mobile River Bridge and Bayway Widening project is a proposal to increase the capacity of I-10 by constructing a new six-lane bridge with 215 feet of Air Draft Clearance (ADC) across the Mobile River and widening the existing I-10 bridges across Mobile Bay from four to eight lanes. The proposed project would be located in Mobile and Baldwin Counties, Alabama.

Oil and Petroleum Storage Tanks
American Tank and Vessel has plans to develop up to 32 oil storage tanks on property located just north of downtown Mobile. Exactly how this development will be allowed to impact the Historic Africa Town and Plateau communities, adjacent housing, the environment and hurricane preparedness remains to be seen. Currently the issue is before a three person sub committee of the Mobile Planning Commission. The sub committee will make recommendations to the full committee before it is taken back up by the Mobile City Council. Our future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow.
