Shelby Announces $5 Million for Huntsville International-Carl T. Jones Field

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that Department of Transportation has awarded $5 million to Huntsville International-Carl T. Jones Field.  This funding will be used to acquire land for development.

“Huntsville is one of the fastest growing cities in the South,” said Shelby. “Acquiring additional land for development will allow Huntsville to meet the needs of the increased population traveling to, from, and through the State.  Efficient transportation systems are critical to attracting new citizens, tourists and businesses.”
