    1. Public Hearings on EIS Next Two Weeks - Please Attend!

      Public hearings on the I-10 Bridge are next two weeks:
      Tuesday, 9/23, 4-8 pm, Alabama Cruise Terminal
      Monday, 9/29, 4-8 pm, Five Rivers Delta Resource Center
      This will be the primary means that ALDOT uses to determine public interest in including a bike-ped path on the I-10 bridge.
      It is CRITICAL that as many people as possible attend to show support for the bike-ped path.
      Please attend one or both meetings and invite any interested parties.
      Also - the online petition will be submitted to ALDOT within the next 2 weeks. Please share the petition and the meeting information by email or social media TODAY.
      Remember - this is likely the best opportunity to get significant federal funding for bicycle-pedestrian infrastructure in our area for a long time. Let's not miss the opportunity.

      Thank you
      Mobile Bicycle Pedestrian Advocacy Committee

    3. Mobile MPO votes to recommend bike/pedestrian facilities on I-10 Bridge

      The Mobile Metropolitan Planning Organization Policy Board, chaired by Mobile Mayor Sam Jones, voted to recommend that ALDOT include bike/pedestrian facilities on the I-10 Mobile River Bridge at their meeting on June 5th after this petition was submitted to them.
      However, please continue to share this petition via email and social networks, as it will be submitted to ALDOT & the Federal Highway Administration during the 45 day public comment which is expected this summer. We would like to have at least 10,000 signatures by the time it is submitted. Thank you. Mobile BPAC.

      I spend my free time and vacation money in the Northwest because they have bike trails and Alabama doesn't. I would like to be able to vacation in my own state and the South in general.

      Alabama is consistently ranked as one of the fattist states with obesity rates well above the nations average. What the fittest states have is public access to activity; ie: sidewalks, bike lanes, bike and walking trails. When it's safe to walk and ride; people do.

      This is a desperate need for our area. We have the optimum climate for health and fitness opportunities, however few people utilize these opportunities because of the safety risks. Bike riders are at particular risk in our area. It also helps to promote tourism in our area.

      These facilities would benefit local residents for many years!

      I believe there are significant economic, safety and health benefits to adding a bike-ped path to the i-10 bridge.
