County engineers from across the state came together in July 2016 to calculate the 10-year benefit of a modest gas tax increase of six-cents per gallon. What they found was incredible! An increase of #just6cents would infuse an additional $1 billion dollars into Alabama’s county road and bridge systems over the next decade. It is estimated that it would have over a $4 billion impact in the form of new jobs, economic development opportunities, safer roads, less travel times, and decreased vehicle repair costs.

The plans also include an estimated split of the money between road and bridge projects, as well as the amount of new road miles and linear feet of bridge that could be constructed as a result of the new funding.
