$1.7 Million to update Eglin Avenue

The upgrades will expand Eglin Avenue in the McClellan Industrial Park and help International Auto Components successfully complete their scheduled expansion. IAC will be adding 359 jobs to the area, and the improved infrastructure will help bring new business to the area. Brian Johnson the City Planner solidified the money through the Alabama DOT’s Industrial Access Road and Bridge Grant program that requires no matching from the city. The City is hopefully that the project can start this year.
