State of Alabama Archives: on Local Issues


Robert Bentley: Fix the fatally-dangerous Redmill Bridge, despite obstacles

When bureaucracy grinds government to a halt, ATRIP has been an answered prayer for communities. Just ask Marshall County about the Redmill Bridge. The dangerous bridge was the site of fatal car crashes. It was an impediment to the local economy heavily dependent on local poultry farms. Chicken trucks couldn't even turn on the road, blocking access to farms and serving as an obstacle to greater overall economic development. Like many of you have seen in your local districts, it was one of those projects everyone wanted and the community desperately needed yet no one in Marshall County thought they would ever see in their lifetime.

Beginning in 2015, our administration joined with the locals and together last month we celebrated the completion of the largest Marshall County project ever. When there is an obstacle along the course of this race we run, we will "find a way or we will make one".
