Birmingham wins federal grant to re-connect communities separated by rail lines, highways

Birmingham was awarded a federal grant today to re-connect communities separated by highways and rail lines.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg announced $800,000 to support Birmingham’s Transportation Capital Investment Plan through the new Reconnecting Communities Pilot Program, an initiative to reconnect communities that have been cut off or isolated by past transportation infrastructure decisions. It’s one of 45 projects receiving $185 million in grant awards.
