Almost nine miles of rough Dallas County roads will be rehabilitated in 2021 using funding created by the Rebuild Alabama Act.
Seven road projects will cost a total of $1.5 million, $1 million of which will come from Rebuild Alabama or federal funds. About $320,000 will be handled under local public works.
The Rebuild Alabama Act increased fuel taxes by 6 cents per gallon in 2019, 2 cents in 2020 and 2 cents in 2021. After 2023, increases will be determined every other year based on how much the cost of construction changes. Cities and counties receive a portion of these increases.
