The possibility of a toll bridge in Mobile is once again a reality.

A planning group has asked the state transportation agenecy for an update on the plans for an Interstate 10 bridge to span 10 miles over the Mobile River and Mobile Bay. 

The project was stopped last year when local opposition complained about the toll.

 State officials are looking at options for a planned bridge that would span the Mobile River and help eliminate traffic congestion along the Gulf Coast.

The state is currently accepting recommendations on how to best incorporate pedestrian and bicycle traffic into plans for the project, which would reroute Interstate 10 through Mobile.
