The most ambitious part of the plan, how- ever, is a proposal to build 2,000 linear feet of pedestrian bridge on the east side of the Ala- bama 59 bridge over the Intracoastal canal. The entire project if approved, is expected to cost about $13.5 million with the city con- tributing $4.2 million. "We're very excited about the potential for this project to create economic opportunities and improve the quality of life for our residents and visitors," Gulf Shores' Environmental- Grants Coordinator, Daniel Bond said. New High-Tech Signals On Highway 59 Greet Summer Traffic Just in time for the summer tourist season, Gulf Shores' new high-tech traffic signals along Alabama State Highway 59 are online. The adaptive signalization system has car- detecting radar installed at all intersections on the state highway from Baldwin County 8 to Beach Boulevard, covering over five miles. Each signal is linked to a mainframe computer with fiber optic lines and the new intercon- nected system takes away the need for manu- ally set timing plans. "The traffic timings are calculated in real- time based on the real traffic that's on the streets at any give time," Gulf shores Public Works Director Mark Acreman said. "And the system learns from itself. The longer it's in place, it will start to develop daily trends." Acreman said the benefits of the system should be most effective during busy holiday weekends and large festivals. n headlines
