TIGER Grant

On July 27, 2016, the Department of Transportation awarded the City of Mobile a $14.5 million TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) grant for the One Mobile: Reconnecting People, Work, and Play through Complete Streets initiative.

This grant provides the City of Mobile the opportunity to revitalize some of the most widely used corridors with new streets, bicycle lanes, sidewalks, drainage, and landscape architecture. The reconstruction will take place in 4 phases between Broad Street and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue over the span of 7 years. The revitalization of over 4 miles of roads with bike and pedestrian paths will allow for increased mobility in the modern era.

The Reconnecting Mobile initiative encompasses many projects that will provide a cohesive street network with strong links to all neighborhoods designed to draw people to the heart of our community. By enhancing sidewalks, greenways, trails, and bike lanes, we will increase opportunity for recreation as well as improve the health and wellness of the entire city. 

Project Goals

  • Provide safe pedestrian and bicycle friendly access for residents, workers, and visitors
  • Reconnect severed neighborhoods currently divided by Broad Street’s seven lane expanse
  • Accommodate all modes of travel with efficient connections between neighborhoods, transportation hubs, major employment centers, and local destinations 
  • Reconstruct aging infrastructure
  • Create attractive, welcoming, and cohesive streetscapes
  • Stimulate an economically vibrant and active street environment
