It'll take more than an interstate

But as Gov. Bob Riley says, an interstate will be a pretty good start when it comes to attracting jobs to Alabama's Black Belt. Riley has ordered the state Department of Transportation to hurry up with the planning on a $1.5 billion, 140-mile extension of Interstate 85 from Montgomery to the Mississippi line. The route is supposed to be finalized by early 2007, when construction should begin.
