Shelby Announces Over $1.5 Million for the University of Alabama in Huntsville

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Department of Transportation's Federal Transit Administration has awarded $1,552,000 to the University of Alabama in Huntsville for its Intermodal Parking Facility.  Senator Shelby was instrumental in securing this funding.

“The southern part of the University of Alabama in Huntsville’s campus has seen significant growth in recent years,” said Shelby.  “UAH will use this funding to continue construction of its parking facility.  The additional parking will help meet the needs of students and researchers who will use the new campus research facilities.”
