HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Governor Kay Ivey and the Alabama Department of Transportation announced that more than $45 million in funding will be awarded to cities and counties for various road and bridge projects.

“In Alabama, across our country and around the globe, we are all still working to get COVID-19 behind us, but here at home, we have not forgotten other priorities. Even as we are overcoming new challenges with the virus, we remain ever committed to making needed improvements to our infrastructure,” Governor Ivey said. “I am proud that Rebuild Alabama continues making these investments possible in areas all across our state. Alabama continues to show progress and tangible results for the people of our state.”

Multiple counties in the Tennessee Valley area will be receiving funding from Governor Ivey that will be used towards road and bridge projects in 2021.

The following counties in the Tennessee Valley will receive funding:

  • Jackson County
  • Madison County
