Shelby Announces $594,000 for City of Mobile

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 $594,000 to the City of Mobile for its waterfront terminal complex.  Senator Shelby was instrumental in securing this funding.

“This funding will be used to design and construct a new pedestrian bridge that will provide access from downtown Mobile to the waterfront,” said Shelby.  “Once completed, this bridge will make it easier for residents and visitors to enjoy the beautiful Mobile waterfront.”
