ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — There’s been a building boom along the relatively rural southwest portion of the Boll Weevil Circle in Enterprise.
In fact, some local officials there believe it could even resemble Dothan’s Ross Clark Circle in the next decade-and-a-half.
On Monday, WDHN looked at how the fiscal 2021 county Rebuild Alabama Act dollars improved roads in Houston County.
On Tuesday, Coffee County Engineer Marty Lentz gave an overview of how the additional tax funds helped pave just under nine miles of local roadways.
This past year, the majority of paving took place around Elba and the western sections of the county.
In many cases, some of these “Farm-to-market” roads have not been “Re-paved” since the 1950s.
Several years ago, the Alabama Legislature approved a gradual increase in the gasoline tax. The proceeds are geared specifically for local roads.
