More than $97 million in federal transportation dollars are headed to Alabama to help reconnect historically underserved communities split apart by past road construction projects.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and the White House announced the projects this week. The money is coming from the federal Reconnecting Communities Pilot and the Neighborhood Access and Equity discretionary grant programs. The two discretionary programs are part of President Joe Biden’s Justice40 Initiative.

The funding is “aimed at reconnecting communities that were cut off by transportation infrastructure decades ago, leaving entire neighborhoods without direct access to opportunity, like schools, jobs, medical offices and places of worship,” a news release announcing the projects said.
