Industrial Access Program

What is the
Industrial Access program?

Industrial access funds are intended to provide adequate public access for eligible projects as defined in Section 23-6-1(5) of the Code of Alabama. These funds are not intended for use in providing access to retail operations. The industry must be committed to new investment and the creation of new jobs.

The new access must be on public right-of-way (state, city or county), must allow normal public use and must comply with standards for design and construction accompanying the use of state funds. The project sponsor (city or county) will assume maintenance responsibilities for the completed facility consistent with the use of state funds, unless the improvements occur on facilities currently maintained by the state.

Prior to the date the qualifying (new or expanding) project is "placed in service", the sponsoring entity or its local development agency must notify the Alabama Department of Commerce of its intent to claim the incentives under Section 41-9-202.1, Code of Alabama 1975. Effective October 9, 2008, the Industrial Access Road and Bridge Corporation application submittal should include the notification acknowledgment letter from the Secretary of Commerce.
