Coming from New Orleans on Monday - which route?

Google Maps says to take the toll road Hwy 98, but staying on Hwy 59 looks more direct. Times are only about 10 min different per Google Maps. Is there a major difference between the 2 routes? Is paying the toll worth it for some reason?

We are staying in Orange Beach.

Hwy 98 is not a toll road in Alabama. That route can be quicker if there is lots of traffic on 59. Either way you should probably take the Foley Beach Express Way to Orange Beach, which does have a toll bridge.
