I-10 Connector project could start moving forward again

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Legislators are proposing a compromise to a $1 billion road construction plan in hopes they can get it passed in the closing days of the legislative session.

One of the earmarked projects would provide money to finish the I-10 Connector study that's needed to get the project moving forward again.

A legislative conference committee approved a compromise
Wednesday that would provide $100 million a year for 10 years for road construction. But it reduced the many special projects that had been included in the House version of the plan.

The compromise version does have a few projects, including $20
million for mass transit in the Birmingham area, $5 million for the
State Docks in Mobile, and $1 million for an Interstate 10
connector at Dothan.

The compromise now goes to the House and Senate for
consideration before the legislative session ends Thursday.
