For Immediate Release:  

Updated Traffic Detour at Dauphin and Broad Streets 


Mobile, Ala – To address potential safety concerns, the barricades on side streets impacted by construction at the intersection of Dauphin and Broad streets have been replaced with water-filled jersey barriers. These barriers are located at the interior of the streets, rather than at the intersection of Dauphin Street or Old Shell Road to prevent motorists from moving or tampering with them. There are also traffic signs and other signage alerting motorists that the roads are closed to through traffic.

The attached detour map will show where the water-filled barriers are. The Mobile Police Department will be continuing to enforce these traffic detours and ticketing anyone who disturbs or destroys traffic barricades or signage (including chaining or tying). MPD will also be enforcing all posted speed limits.
