Alabama is funding various infrastructure projects throughout the state to the tune of roughly $5.1 million thanks to the Annual Grant Program, under the Rebuild Alabama Act.

Announced yesterday by Governor Kay Iveythe projects include resurfacing portions of Sellers Street, North Garland Road, and Main Street in Baldwin County, reconstruction of Jackson Street and School Street in Coosa County, and replacing the bridge on CR-220 over Brush Creek in Greene County to name a few.

“Just recently, we marked the fourth anniversary of Rebuild Alabama, and it has continued to show it produces nothing less than real, tangible results. With this grant, 21 new projects will be underway and under development, ready to benefits folks in all corners of the state,” said the Governor of the Yellowhammer State. “I’m proud of Rebuild Alabama’s success, and I look forward to seeing how it continues to improve such critical infrastructure. Alabama’s roads and bridges are making substantial progress, and we look forward to this continuing.”

According to a news release, cities and counties also contributed a total of over $2.9 million in local matching funds. It is estimated that a multitude of projects will be under contract by the end of the year. All projects are required to move forward within one year of the awarding of funds.

Over $145 million in state transportation has been awarded through the local grant programs created by the Rebuild Alabama Act during this round of funding.

The Rebuild Alabama Act passed in 2019, and requires the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) to establish an annual program setting aside $10 million off the top of the state’s share of new gas tax revenue for local projects.
