The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) is holding the second round of public and stakeholder meetings for the Statewide Transportation Plan (SWTP) update. The SWTP summarizes the current conditions of Alabama’s transportation system and its needs and priorities for the next 25 years. It addresses all modes of travel for passengers and freight—roadways and bridges, transit, bicycle/pedestrian, rail, aviation, and waterways. It identifies system needs, evaluates investments in infrastructure and maintenance, and compares historic and anticipated funding levels against needs.

The public is invited to share their thoughts. Each meeting will include an open house at 5 p.m. with a presentation at 5:30 p.m.

The meeting schedule for the Southern part of the state is as follows:
