Thompson Engineering Team to Lead Mobile River Bridge Design

A team led by Thompson Engineering has been selected by the Alabama Department of Transportation as the design firm for the I-10 Mobile River Bridge and Bayway Widening project. “Our team’s experts know the issues relating to the Mobile River Bridge and Bayway corridor because we live here,” said Thompson Engineering CEO Jimmy Shumock. “We’ve also created some of the world’s most iconic bridges and gateways, and we’ve worked on projects up and down the Mobile River and on both sides of Mobile Bay.”

The I-10 Mobile River Bridge and Bayway Widening project will increase the capacity of I-10 by constructing a new bridge across the Mobile River and widening the existing I-10 bridges across Mobile Bay. Design work will include decisions on a multitude of details, from the visual appeal of the cable stay bridge, to pedestrian access points and lighting that complements that of downtown Mobile’s skyline. “This project is about more than building a bridge. It’s about connecting communities, improving neighborhoods and creating a safer environment for the drivers of Mobile and those who drive through our city,” said Shumock. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and we’re privileged to be a part of it.” 

The team begins working with ALDOT immediately.
