Dallas County is in good financial shape, extends plans for repaving roads in 2022 and is hiring, according to Commission Chairman Jimmy Nunn in his State of Dallas County address at the Rotary Club of Selma on Monday.
Road repairs leads concerns and efforts of Dallas County in 2022, and Nunn said there are plans to make headway on fixing many long-damaged thoroughfares this year thanks to annual Rebuild Alabama funding.
One grant, Rebuild Alabama, gives the county $1 million a year toward paving roads and has sped up a list of road projects that have sat on the shelf for years.
A highly anticipated road project on the docket is redoing the Highway 80 and 41 intersections at the bypass. It is a $2.4 million project covered mostly by grants. Nunn said the county only has to pay $200,000 of it and it will include new turn lanes into the industrial park.
