Funding Approved to Widen Martin Road

U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby has announced that a Senate-approved appropriations bill includes $10 million to widen a vital corridor in Huntsville, Alabama, which is a Garver project. The Huntsville Times recently ran an article about Martin Road and its funding.

Garver is responsible for field surveying, preliminary design, corridor and environmental studies, traffic studies, bridge hydraulic modeling, preliminary bridge design, right-of-way acquisition documents, and design and construction plan preparation services to widen Martin Road from a two-lane facility to a five-lane roadway with curb and gutter, sidewalks, integrated bike lanes, traffic signal, and a new bridge structure over Betts Spring.

The Martin Road corridor provides a vital connection between Redstone Arsenal and Huntsville International Airport, and the proposed additional lanes will provide the needed capacity to handle the increased traffic volumes on Martin Road. This project will also provide the capacity needed for the rapidly growing residential developments in the area as well as the BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) related growth anticipated at Redstone Arsenal.
