Fern Avenue Extension quickly coming along

Posted

The Fern Avenue Extension is underway, and the progress is moving along at a quick pace. Once complete, the extension will go from Highway 59 to the Foley Beach Express. The purpose of the extension is twofold: for one, it will give the community another access onto the Beach Express, which will help take some traffic from the downtown area of the city. Also, it will be another access point for ambulances going to the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach areas and bringing patients back to South Baldwin Regional Medical Center. This will help to not only keep the traffic moving as citizens have another roadway to travel, but it will also help medical response teams reach the beach and deliver patients to the hospital in less time.
