Commission On Infrastructure

The Commission consists of 50 members who represent corporations, state agencies, consulting firms and other organizations with vested interest and expertise in the state’s transportation infrastructure system. Four committees, each with their own area of focus, research potential solutions to infrastructure issues as well as projects for improvement and capital investment.

  • Freight Shipments & Logistical Needs-chaired by Dwight Jennings of Southern Shipping & Logistics- evaluates the shipment of raw materials, component parts and finished products by both existing and prospective new industries.
  • Non-Freight Movement & Transportation Needs-chaired by State Rep. Cam Ward-deals with the challenges facing the traveling public in terms of public safety, convenience and commuting issues as well as the economic impact of transportation on the community.
  • Economic Development-chaired by Linda Swann of the Alabama Development Office- identifies and evaluates the economic development opportunities available through improved infrastructure systems and the consequences of continued deterioration and a failure to improve intermodal coordination.
  • Maintenance & Upkeep of Infrastructure Assets- chaired by Franky Griggs of Nucor Steel- evaluates critical repair and maintenance needs facing various elements of Alabama’s infrastructure system.

Also, a fifth committee chaired by Dr. Bill Killingsworth of the University of Alabama at Huntsville provided research, data and other technical support necessary for the four working committees and the Commission to evaluate the state’s infrastructure needs and to propose solutions. These four committees presented their findings to the Commission who then created the final recommendations, which are included in the link below. Many Manufacture Alabama members served on the Commission as well as its four committees. Specifically, Tommy Johnson of Frontier Yarns is chairman the Commission on Infrastructure Chair, and Franky Griggs of Nucor Steel is the chairman of the Maintenance Committee. Please see the link below to view all commission and committee members. We are grateful to all of the commission and committee members who contributed to this worthwhile initiative.

An efficient transportation infrastructure system is an essential element of competitive success for manufacturers. The recommendations of the Commission will provide that system and continue to make Alabama a top state for successful manufacturing industries.
