BJCC board says "no" to lower I-20/59

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The BJCC Board says "no" to spending cash on a study to lower I-20/59 to street level.

The request came from Mike Calvert of Operation New Birmingham to spend 35-thousand dollars for a study to lower the interstate in front of the Civic Center.

Members of the board said they did not want to spend the money when b-j-c-c employees have been denied bonuses and raises.
