Funded by a $14.2 million BUILD grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation along with funds from the City of Decatur, the Highway 20 Overpass project officially began in March. Once complete, the 300-foot overpass will stretch over Highway 20, near I-65 and I-565 interchange in Decatur.

City officials hope that the project will encourage economic interest in the area, with new mixed-use developments in the works.

2. New Distribution Center ($14.8M)

Graham & Company, a Birmingham-based commercial real estate firm, is currently developing a new distribution facility along Bibb Garret Road, just a short drive from the upcoming Highway 20 Overpass. As it’s located near to the I-65 and I-565 interchange, the distribution facility will be perfect for companies in need of interstate access. In addition, the facility offers:

  • 305,760 square-feet of space
  • 70+ dock doors to park a trailer
  • 135-foot truck apron
  • Drive-in ramps available as needed per tenant

Graham & Company plans to have the distribution center finished by January 2022.
