Bankhead Tunnel (Mobile, Al) To Close For Repairs

The Alabama Department of Transportation announced the Bankhead Tunnel will close Monday morning through Friday afternoon (2/19-2/23). The closing of the Bankhead Tunnel in Mobile is part of an ALDOT project to replace the generators in the tunnel, strengthening and modernizing the electrical components of the tunnel. Once the generator is replaced, ALDOT plans to also upgrade the older lighting and lighting systems inside the tunnel to assist drivers while driving.
