The Delta Region Transportation Development Program will provide federal funds for transportation infrastructure development projects in Delta Regional Authority designated counties. These funds will help facilitate multi-state transportation planning and corridor development for this impoverished area of the country. The bill also provides for priority consideration of the East/West Corridor realignment and reconstruction between Cuba, AL and the Montgomery metropolitan area.
Sen. Shelby said, “The link between the transportation infrastructure and economic development is unmistakable. Establishing a transportation program specifically for the Delta Region is a crucial step towards promoting economic development, raising the standard of living, and improving quality of life in this traditionally impoverished region.”
