Shelby Announces $6.5 Million for University of Alabama Intermodal Facility

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Department of Transportation's Federal Transit Administration has awarded $6,511,380 to the University of Alabama for its southern Intermodal Facility.  Senator Shelby was instrumental in securing this funding.

“The University of Alabama will use this funding to construct an intermodal facility that will ease on-campus congestion,” said Shelby.  “The proximity of this facility to on-campus housing will also provide for a safer and more secure campus for students. This facility will be of great benefit to the students, faculty and staff of this growing college community.”
