Transportation projects awarded for highway infrastructure in Georgia


ATLANTA — Georgia transportation officials have announced the awarding of highway infrastructure improvement projects, including pavement rehabilitation on Interstate 16 and Interstate 20.

The Georgia Department of Transportation says $8.9 million will be spent to repair the concrete driving surface on more than 42 miles of I-20 in Greene, Taliaferro, Warren and McDuffie counties. Those repairs are expected to be complete by the end of April 2016.

Eleven miles of I-16 in Chatham County between the Little Ogeechee River and CSX railroad overpass will also be rehabilitated at a cost of $5.4 million. That should be done in August.

Those projects are among 13 awarded this week by GDOT.
