Governor’s $1.3M Grant Finishes Work on New Redstone Gate

HUNTSVILLE, AL  |  AUGUST 16, 2017 – Further enhancing Redstone Gateway, a business park development by Corporate Office Property  Trust and Jim Wilson & Associates  (JWA) located at the intersection of I-565 and Rideout Road at the Redstone Arsenal entrance,  is the long awaited Gate 9 relocation. The official opening was celebrated with the traditional ribbon cutting event with executives Jim Wilson III  from JWA and Steve Budorick, CEO of Corporate Office Property Trust, participating and joining Governor Kay Ivey and other key people at the event.

Gov. Kay Ivey officially opened a new $13 million main gate to Huntsville’s Redstone Arsenal today, and she brought a $1.3 million state check to help pay for it.

Ivey awarded a state grant to the Redstone project because of the base’s $100 million annual economic impact on Alabama and the daily traffic congestion backing up from the gate to Interstate 565.

“Over 40,000 folks enter Gate 9 every day and, before its relocation, it was a huge traffic congestion, as you know,” Ivey said. “It’s been going on for some time, and it was just an impediment to good progress.”
