Covering Autauga County: Prattville road project could get financial boost

Prattville, Ala. (WSFA) -- A much needed construction project in Autauga county could get a financial boost.

Congressman Bobby Bright's office tells WSFA 12 News the freshman lawmaker was able to secure funding for three Alabama projects including the widening of McQueen Smith Road in Prattville.

Uncle Sam will give $1 million to the city for construction which will stretch from Main Street to U.S. Highway 31 for about 2 miles.

Mayor Jim Byard says the city has already begun the pre-engineering phase.
