Several Marshall County ATRIP projects up for bid in next few months

MARSHALL COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) — Some Marshall County roads and bridges are getting a makeover thanks to ATRIP funding, and several of those projects are up for bid these upcoming months.

Resurfacing part of Hustleville Road from SR 227 to Short Creek is just one of the 20 ATRIP projects Marshall County has planned or in the works.

The projects consist of either resurfacing roads, fixing bridges, or replacing bridges.

The several projects planned to be bid out this month, August and September are for resurfacing.

That type of project means good news for local companies.

“We don’t have many bridge contractors here locally. Now, your paving, most of them are local,” Marshall County Commission Chair James Hutcheson says.

Several of the 20 projects are in the early stages. “I think we’re in a good planning stage in a lot of them, and everything is going well,” Hutcheson says.

Two of the 20 projects are completed.

The repairs started roughly a year and a half ago, Hutcheson says.

Districts one, three and four boast the most projects benefiting from ATRIP funding.

District two has two projects in the works. Hutcheson says that district’s roads are in the best shape.
