Before 2010, trucks bringing supplies to the plant also used Fern Avenue. That year, city officials extended Airport Road north to Baldwin County 24, another east west route. Foley officials built the extension to relieve truck traffic through local neighborhoods between the plant and Ala. 59.
Fern Avenue runs east and west, extending from just east of Ala. 59 to Baldwin County 65. The road is used by area residents and employees of plants such as the Goodrich Aerostructures facility near the airport.
Lowering the road would also require moving utility lines and culverts, Michael Thompson, city administrator, said. Raising the runway could be even more expensive than lowering the road or building a new route, he said.
told Volkert officials and City Engineer Wendell "Butch" Stokes to design plans to extend Airport Road south from Fern Avenue about 2,000 feet to Cater Lee Way near the city baseball and soccer park complex. That would allow the city to close Fern Avenue before it encroaches on the runway approach zone.
"The grade increases as you come east, and it about a 4 foot violation of the approach surface, so you have to lower Fern by about 4 feet or raise the end of the runway by 4 feet," Morrow said.
Either alternative could also require closing the airport until construction is complete.
The new route could provide a link between Cater Lee Way and Baldwin County 24. Joe Bouzan, airport manager, said such a road could help with traffic leaving events at the ball park complex, which hosts, among other events Foley annual Hot Air Balloon Festival. 98, putting tractor trailer rigs on the road with cars carrying children to games, Councilman Wayne Trawick said.

The County Commission also added turn lanes to Baldwin 24 to accommodate truck traffic at the Airport Road intersection.

aviation regulations, said Brett Morrow of Volkert Engineering .
"The state and FAA are aware that we working to resolve it," Bouzan said Friday. "They been fine with that. Of course, if we waited too long, they could come back with an ultimatum."
FOLEY, Alabama Four feet of elevation could shut down a section of Fern Avenue south of the municipal airport and require a $1 million bypass, city officials said.
Bouzan said officials with the Alabama Aeronautics Bureau notified Foley around 2010 that the road violated the federal Runway Protection Zone. The city has not been given a deadline to fix the violation.
Trawick said this week that officials do not want a new southern extension of Airport Road to create new problems with heavy traffic around children and parents.
"I like to see all the options. I hate to close that street, but we may not have a choice," Trawick said."Bringing the street through to Cater Lee Way is great in a lot of ways, but it bad in that you going to get truck traffic through there to the park. Trucks through the middle of a park is not good."
