Thomasville,  GA (WALB) - Construction will begin in 2010 on Fairfax Street, Westover Avenue, Raleigh Avenue, Branch Street, and Graydon Avenue.

Thomasville was one of 65 communities in Georgia selected as a recipient of federal funding from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The city will have half a million dollars to complete the project. 

"This is a prayer for me being answered here to get these people out of the mud and out of the water because this is a bad spot anytime we have a flash flood we have to come over here and clean out the ditches and get people out of ditches," said Councilman Earl Williams, Jr.

Williams has served part of town for 28 years and says he's been pushing to get the roads paved for a long time.

In addition to paving, the money will help with much needed drainage, water, and sewer improvements.
