Birmingham's northern beltline project pushed by supporters

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Supporters of Birmingham's Northern Beltline want a unified front pushing the multi-billion dollar project.
On Tuesday, the executive director of the Coalition of Regional Transportation asked the Jefferson County Commission to continue to back the northern beltline.
The project is expected to deliver about 70,000 new jobs and an economic impact of about $7 billion.

A vote is expected next week.

Land is already being cleared for the project.
