ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County commissioners used eminent domain to take property for a road widening project.

The deadline set by the department of transportation for right of way acquisition of Gillionville Road is May 1st.

The county has negotiated most of the purchases, but couldn't come to an agreement on three. They've already secured three by eminent domain.

Wednesday, they voted to take a third parcel, about half an acre near eight mile road. The property owners, Jon T. Phillips and Linda Fain Spurlock didn't want to accept the $19,050 the county offered.

The property now belongs to the county, the amount the owners will receive can now be debated in court.

 "We have until Friday to transfer all this property over to DOT, or the project is dead," said County Commissioner Lamar Hudgins. 

The county will start accepting bids for construction of the project July 14th.
