Facilitating communication, strengthening infrastructure, and improving safety

The Rural Planning Organization (RPO), funded through an initiative of the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT), seeks to improve the safety of roadways in non-metropolitan areas and provide a direct line of communication between rural areas and ALDOT. Meant as a consultation process, the RPO comprises three committees:

Citizens Advisory Committee

Meets once each quarter in each of four non-metropolitan counties including DeKaIb, Jackson, Limestone, and Marshall

Technical Advisory Committee

Includes county engineers, representatives of ALDOT District and Division offices, and representatives of trucking, rail, and aviation industries

Policy Committee

Provides a forum for representatives of municipalities and county commissions to discuss highway-related issues with ALDOT and one another
