BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Governor Ivey and the Alabama Department of Labor's Abandoned Mine Land Program announced a new project Wednesday.
The Grand River Technology Park project is expected to bring at least 1,200 new jobs and generate more than an $85 million impact in the Greater Birmingham area.
The park will be located on 105 acres of undeveloped land and abandoned coal mines in east Jefferson County. ADVERTISING
Also, the Southern Museum of Flight will be relocated to the site.
"The new Grand River Technology Park will be a regional nexus for research and development, tourism, and light manufacturing," Governor Kay Ivey said. "This project will bring positive improvements to the citizens who call this community home."
