Several exciting developments are underway in The River City, including the new Highway 20 Overpass and so much more. Keep reading for all the details!
1. Alabama Highway 20 Overpass ($18.4M)
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.
