In keeping with the organization’s mission of redeveloping Mobile’s coastal community in a way that encourages absorption of rain and stormwater, a central community eye-sore has begun a complete transformation.
Located in the community “downtown” and across from B.C. Rain High School, the highly traveled intersection was a sea of stormwater causing hardened surface.
The Peninsula of Mobile coordinated a project with the City to apply for and receive an ALDOT Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) sidewalk grant. Thanks to matching City of Mobile Capital Improvement funds, the asphalt surface was removed and replaced with grass and an ADA compliant sidewalk making a safer pedestrian crossing.
