DOUGHERTY COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Governor Sonny Perdue has cleared the way for the state to accept $207-million in stimulus money for road projects. Two of those roads are in Dougherty County.

Gillionville Road will be expanded from Lockett Station Road to Eight Mile Road. Much of Jefferson Street will also be repaved. and resurfaced.

Albany city officials are already preparing their request for round two of stimulus distribution.

"The local road of interest is the Broad Avenue Bridge. That is not on the list, but are working to get it added as well," Albany Assistant City Manager, Wes Smith.

The bidding process for the Gillionville and Jefferson projects will start this summer. Georgia expects to get more than $800-million for transportation projects from the stimulus package.
