MONTGOMERY, AL (WAFF) -
Governor Robert Bentley announced
Thursday plans for 105 road and bridge projects across Alabama.
The plan is part of the Alabama
Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program.
ATRIP is the largest road and bridge
improvement program in Alabama history. Among the counties that will benefit
are Colbert County, Franklin County, Jackson County, Lauderdale County,
Limestone County, Madison County and Marshall County.
The road projects were selected after
counties submitted project proposals. Eligible projects were reviewed and
approved by a council and Bentley. Every eligible county received at least one
large cities to rural areas, the people of this state deserve reliable, safe
roads and bridges," Governor Bentley said in a press statement. "School
buses should not have to be detoured around substandard bridges.
Communities need help improving roads that are currently over capacity or in
need of various safety improvements."
The project total will be $138.5
million. The funds will come 20 percent from local government matching and 80
percent from GARVEE bonds.
