The Birmingham Section started 2015 with a political reception at the Murray Building Co. jobsite at the old Merita Bread Bakery. More than 150 members were in attendance with city and state officials. Everyone enjoyed a tour of the site as well as barbecue from Joe McNabb and Hendrix Chevrolet.

DRIVE Alabama Website

Our network of local roads and bridges is in critical condition. Without action, the problem will only grow worse and more costly.

The DRIVE Alabama campaign is focused on Developing a Road & Infrastructure Vision for Everyone in Alabama. It is a coalition of county commissioners, community leaders, and citizens led by county engineers who want to bring attention to Alabama's growing infrastructure needs. Currently, 66 of Alabama's 67 counties are actively involved in the campaign!

The DRIVE Alabama website officially launched TODAY and we are taking our message statewide! Please take a moment to visit the website to learn more about the positive impacts local infrastructure investments can have on Alabama communities!

Alabama’s infrastructure is the foundation that spurs economic development, attracts quality jobs, keeps us competitive in international markets, and enhances our everyday quality of life. But when children arrive to school late, or employees can’t clock in on time, or goods aren’t delivered in an efficient manner — everyone pays the price.

Will you join the DRIVE Alabama movement to improve Alabama’s road and bridge infrastructure by forwarding this email to your contacts, LIKING US on Facebook, FOLLOWING US on Twitter, and FOLLOWING US on Instagram?

There's plenty of road work ahead for Alabama, and it will require a grassroots movement to make sure we are fully prepared to address the state's 21st century mobility needs.

Thank you!
