MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

State and city leaders described the progress they have made on North Alabama road projects as a team effort Monday.

Representatives for Morgan, Madison, Limestone, and Cullman Counties joined with city leaders to give an update on current and future Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program (ATRIP) funding.

Approvals have already been made on more than $50 million in projects. Work on two major projects has already begun: that of County Line Road, which will benefit people in Limestone and Madison Counties, and the project on Old Madison Pike, leading to Research Park in Huntsville.

"It's important that we recognize, as some of my colleagues have said, that we're not fighting for one little piece of the pie, but rather working as a team," said Senator Bill Holtzclaw. "We all benefit when we do that, and we're seeing that through continued economic development."

The group said many of the projects they are working on have been on the books for years, and they are now coming together to get those projects done.
