Roadwork contract OK'd

MOBILE, Ala. -- The Mobile City Council this week approved the last city-related road contracts associated with the redevelopment of the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley. Under the $1.4 million deal, Gulf Equipment Corp. will make improvements to Baker Street, a link between the Alabama state docks and the $600 million Airbus A320 final assembly line being built at the Aeroplex. Some $20 million in taxpayer investment has been spent improving Aeroplex roads ahead of the Airbus plant's 2015 opening. (Source:, 02/20/14)
