Waterway East Boulevard Expansion

The Waterway East Improvements project will consist of a 2 mile extension of Waterway East to Cotton Creek Drive as well as new drainage, landscaping and pedestrian improvements for East 29th Ave and portions of East 2nd St. The project will provide a new route from Hwy 59 to Cotton Creek Drive along the Intracoastal Waterway, providing relief to traffic congestion on Hwy 59 and better access to the forthcoming commercial terminal at the Gulf Shores International Airport.  All roadway improvements will have some combination of sidewalks, bike lanes, and detached multi-use trails.


Construction is currently underway and estimated to be complete by December 2025.
