Governor Kay Ivey and the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) on Thursday announced $7 million in funding is being awarded to cities and counties across the state for various local road and bridge projects.
Made available through the Annual Grant Program, a new program created under the Rebuild Alabama Act that established the gas tax, the funding will support 31 projects.
“An investment in our roads and bridges is an investment in the future of Alabama. These $7 million in funds will go a long way in helping communities across the state address various road and bridge projects,” Ivey said. “I am proud to see the continuing positive ramifications from the Rebuild Alabama Act. Soon, every Alabama citizen will feel the benefits from this additional investment in our infrastructure.”
$7 million in awards is part of a larger $10 million that has been set aside under the Rebuild Alabama Act for local road and bridge projects this year. A second award cycle is expected later this year to award the remaining $3 million
