MOBILE, AL (WKRG)
8:23 AM — Updating your Monday morning commute we are rolling along smoothly on the Eastern Shore. If you’re headed over towards Mobile you’ll start to see some fog there around the Battleship Parkway exit so you might slow your speed just a little bit into the George Wallace and Bankhead tunnel. We did have a fender bender just outside of the Bankhead tunnel on the Mobile side. Mobile Police clearing that and trying to get it moved out of the way. Beyond that fender benders at DIP at Levine Street also University at Morrison Drive and Lott Road at Coleman Dairy Road in Mobile. We’re looking good though coming down I-65 with no problems there.
7:55 AM — While not so bad along the Eastern Shore fog has become an issue on the mobile side of the bay way so if you’re headed towards mobile this morning about halfway across you’ll start to find yourself in some pretty thick fog that’s the same deal to the downtown area as well so slow your speed there and make sure there’s headlights are on low be moving along nicely even with the fog. Alabama Highway patrol headed the scene of an accident Lott at Coleman Dairy Road, also Moffett Road at Shelton Beach Road, Mobile police on the scene of that fender bender there. No problems coming down I-65 but careful to those school zones.
