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.
