At Least $250 Million In State Funds Will Be Available For Mobile I-10 Project

Alabama Political Reporter notes that in expressing support on Monday for the revival of the I-10 Mobile River Bridge and Bayway Project, Alabama DOT said the state will will commit at least $250 million in construction funding, which is double the amount of an INFRA grant USDOT awarded in 2019. Said Mobile MPO chairman Sandy Stimpson, “Support from the state is critical to moving this project forward and to setting our region of the state up for long-term success. The commitment of at least $250 million is significant, and it is an investment that’s in line with other major infrastructure projects across the state. We know that without action, we risk losing existing federal funding as our traffic problems get worse. We are looking forward to continuing our work to turn this framework into a final plan.”
