Drove Baldwin County 83 north from U.S. 90 to County Road 64 today to check out the status of road work for the Baldwin Beach Express. CR-83 shifts from one carriageway to another on the drive, with traffic using a new northbound span of Davis Branch near U.S. 90. The angled portion at CR-64 is now the default route of CR-83, with two-way traffic using the future southbound carriageway. CR-83 at CR-64 is closed now, with the angled alignment defaulting as the connection between the two county roads. Photos:
County Road 83/Baldwin Beach Express southbound at the current end with U.S. 90. Some asphalt is in place south of the intersection, but road work is yet underway beyond the tree line.
Looking north at the Baldwin Beach Express from U.S. 90 toward the crossing of Davis Branch of the Blackwater River. Traffic shifts from the northbound carriageway to the southbound one beyond the 2011-date-stamped bridge.
