"There are many projects which I want to see completed, including extending I-759 in Gadsden, building a new Southside Bridge, and completing the Highway 411 4-lane project between Etowah and Cherokee counties which is currently under construction." --Andrew Jones
For years, we were in a bare-minimum maintenance situation with our infrastructure. In Montgomery, Andrew has continued to fight to repair our crumbling roads and bridges. Many of our roads are simply unsafe, and many of our bridges are past their intended lifespan.
Extending I-759 in Gadsden and building a new Southside Bridge will mean much more than just relieving traffic congestion. Andrew believes these projects will contribute to the economic development of Etowah County, help recruit industry, and improve the quality of life for all of us who live and work there.
Andrew is excited that the US Highway 411 expansion project was announced as one of the first Rebuild Alabama Projects. Many of our citizens travel that road for work, and the bottleneck there is dangerous. Continuous 4-lane access from I-759 into Cherokee County via US 411 will also help recruit industry to Cherokee County.
