$50 Million in State Dollars going toward Road Projects

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama -

Millions of state dollars are headed into Mobile County for some much needed road and bridge improvements.

Local officials announced the funding Wednesday Morning. Seventeen projects have the green light, totaling more than $50 million.

Under the ATRIP program the state provides 80-percent of the funding, local cities or the county only have to match 20 percent.

Mobile, Satsuma, Saraland, Prichard and Chickasaw are all on the list. Many say the 80-20 split is the only way to fund these projects.

“No they would not I think it would have been critical because i worked early on with a couple of the communities about road projects and there was really no way they could do it, when all of a sudden your match is 20 percent of the total that made many more opportunities out there,” said State Representative Randy Davis.
