Ya Mon!

Mr. DuBose was always a great supporter of highway construction.

 

From the stories that still circulate concerning the early days of the Alabama Road Builders Association, it’s safe to say he enjoyed the camaraderie of the Association and its members immensely.

 

Mr. DuBose had a “hands on” management style where frequently he would be the first and last person at the job site in addition to tending to the administrative functions of the business.

 

DCC completed several major projects during the 1960s, including sites located in:

 

  • Leon County, Florida
  • Lake County, Florida
  • Baldwin County, Alabama
  • Escambia County, Alabama

 

DuBose Construction also performed work in Jamaica during these years, extending their service area nearly 500 miles to the south! Ya Mon!

 

The English translation for the Jamaican saying “ya mon” is “no problem!” (Source: Sandals Blog»)

The Interstate Era

Long before the Internet phenomenon began, the Interstate Highway System is how people connected.

 

In the 1970s, DuBose Construction had a significant role in constructing new portions of Interstate highway in Florida and Alabama. They built approximately forty-five miles of Interstate in Florida, including a 14-mile section of I-75 in Sarasota County near Tampa.

 

The company also completed several notable projects for the Alabama Highway Department (now called the “Alabama Department of Transportation”) during these years.

On the Move!

It was during the 70s when DCC relocated its corporate headquarters from downtown Montgomery to its present location near the Mt. Meigs, Alabama community east of Montgomery.

 

Over time, Montgomery expanded its corporate limits, so we once again have a Montgomery street address. Find us on Google Maps by clicking here»

 

You’ll know you’ve arrived when you see the sign.

Subdivisions & Real Estate

During the early 1990s the company continued along the same course, competing in the Highway Department business while making various projects within the private sector.

 

It was also during this time that Mr. DuBose led his company into a new arena. The company began to purchase and develop tracts of real estate with local investors in the Montgomery area.

 

The company took an active role in the site preparation and development of subdivisions and other real estate developments.
