MONTGOMERY – Governor Robert Bentley on Monday announced 34 additional, supplemental road and bridge projects that are now able to move forward as part of Round 1 of funding for ATRIP – the Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program.
“With these additional projects, we are moving closer to our goal of improving the safety of roads and bridges throughout Alabama,” Governor Bentley said. “Many of our bridges are in desperate need of repair or replacement. Many of our roads are outdated and cannot handle current demand. Through ATRIP, we are able to make needed improvements to enhance public safety and quality of life in our communities.”
The first phase of Round 1 funding was announced in May. The additional projects announced by Governor Bentley Monday include 30 bridge rehabilitation or replacement projects. Additional road widening, resurfacing, and intersection improvement projects are also included.
