PINCKARD, Ala. (WDHN) — The town of Pinckard will soon see revival for several of its roads.

The money to make this happen comes from a part of the Rebuild Alabama Act.

Gov. Kay Ivey and the Alabama Department of Transportation is awarding state funding to various cities and counties for road and bridge projects.

The city of Pinckard will receive over $240,000 to resurface roads.

“I got a call yesterday from Sen. Donny Chesteen telling me for sure that I was awarded the money, and I just want to thank the governor and mr. Cooper because it’s much needed here in town and we couldn’t do it without them,” said Bobby Borland, the mayor of Pinckard.

The roads that will receive work include: Old Campbellton Highway, Pinckard Heights Circle, Ranah Drive, Beth Court, Saint Andrews Street and Church Street.

A Church Street resident said he believe townspeople will be “tickled” to see the completed project.

“Oh absolutely, it’s got some wear on it, but it’d be a great addition,” resident Fred Garzarek said. “It’s a great little town, and it’d spruce it up some.”

Borland said this project is important for the appearance and safety of the town.

This is the second year Pinckard has applied for the grant.
