Winchester Rd. on List of State Road Projects for ATRIP Funding

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Robert Bentley has announced 302 more road and bridge projects that the state will finance with bond sales.

The 302 projects announced Monday total $398 million, with nearly $60 million earmarked for the valley.

That boosts Gov. Bentley's Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program (ATRIP) to 439 projects totaling $613 million.

The largest projects include $18.7 million in Tuscaloosa to extend Fifth Avenue to Hackberry Lane at the University of Alabama campus and $16.6 million in Foley to extend Pride Drive from Alabama Highway 59 to County Road 20.

In Madison County, projects include $7 million to improve the interchange at Blake Bottom Road and Research Park Blvd. and $3.6 million to widen Winchester Road from the Flint River past Bell Factory Road.

Cities and counties applied to the state to have projects approved, and they agreed to put up as much as 20% of the funding.

The governor said the state's share comes from selling bonds that will be paid for with future funding from the federal government for highway improvements.
