As a part of more than $45 million in funding that has been awarded to various counties and cities across the state, Enterprise has received $2 million for a roundabout, as a part of the Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program-II (ATRIP-II).
Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey and the Alabama Department of Transportation (ADOT) announced that ATRIP-II was a program created under the Rebuild Alabama Act with the funds coming from Alabama’s gas tax revenue for projects of local interest on the state highway system.
Enterprise will be receiving $2 million from the state to construct a roundabout at State Route 27 and Shellfield Road. The total cost of the project will be $3,023,561.
“In Alabama, across our country and around the globe, we are still working to get COVID-19 behind us, but here at home, we have not forgotten other priorities,” Ivey said. “Even as we are overcoming new challenges with the virus, we remain ever committed to making needed improvements to our infrastructure. I am proud that Rebuild Alabama continues making these investments possible in areas all across our state. Alabama continues to show progress and tangible results for the people of our state.”
A total of 27 projects were selected to receive funding as a part of ATRIP-II. All projects are required to move forward within two years of the awarding of the funds but most are expected to begin construction this year.
