The Trussville City Council on Tuesday approved a resolution agreement for lighting Interstate 59 from Deerfoot Parkway to Chalkville Road.
The project is part of Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley’s Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program for 2013, which was announced in February. It was announced in February that the interchange lighting on I-59 at Deerfoot Parkway would cost $141,300 locally and ATRIP would cover $565,000 for a total of $706,300.
Funding for ATRIP comes through the use of GARVEE bonds. With GARVEE bonds, Alabama is able to access future federal dollars to pay for road and bridge projects that are needed immediately.
The project calls for 35 high mast luminaires of varying amounts of wattage and 52 roadway luminaire assemblies with varying amounts of wattage.
