Local roads and bridges get major boost from Rebuild Alabama

“When we invest in our roads and bridges, we are investing in our people and our future”

When Gov. Kay Ivey awarded the most recent round of local projects, that’s how she described their importance to communities across Alabama.

Tens of millions of dollars have already contributed to prepping our infrastructure for the 21st century.

Cities such as as Trussville, Tuscaloosa and Slocomb, and counties from Autauga to Jefferson to Etowah, are seeing road and bridge projects which will make life easier for residents of the Yellowhammer State.

In 2020, 43 local projects received grant money from the Rebuild Alabama program, with an average award of nearly $333,000. The program is on pace to surpass those totals in 2021, with an average award of more than $357,000.

Better roads. Stronger bridges.

More jobs. Less headaches.

Rebuild Alabama is delivering for us.
