Entering the Malbis, U.S. 90 approaches Alabama 181 (Malbis Plantation Parkway). Alabama 181 constitutes a growing north-south arterial joining the Eastern Shore Centre area of Spanish Fort with U.S. 98 at Weeks Bay. Photo taken 06/09/06.
U.S. 90 west at Alabama 181, pictured during 2006 construction of Eastern Shore Park shopping center and before the intersection expansion to include protected turn lanes from U.S. 90 onto Alabama 181. Alabama 181 originally ended at U.S. 90 and entailed just Malbis Plantation Parkway northward to Interstate 10 (Exit 38) and U.S. 31. Extension of the state highway southward occurred in 2004 when ALDOT and Baldwin County swapped mileage between then Baldwin County 27 and Alabama 112. Construction is underway as of 2010 to expand Alabama 181 into a four-lane highway from U.S. 90 south to Baldwin County 64. The overall goal is for a four-lane corridor of Alabama 181 southward to U.S. 98 to provide an optional route to the congested arterial through Daphne and Fairhope to the west. Photo taken 06/09/06.
Annexations from both Daphne and Spanish Fort absorbed the previously unincorporated area of Malbis. Expansion of U.S. 90 initially adds a westbound lane at Alabama 181 for the adjacent retail area.
