ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Tift county recently got some much needed money to help replace an old bridge and culvert.

The County received  funding through the American Recovery Reinvestment act to replace the worn out bridge and culvert on Scooterville road near the Ty Ty creek.

The purpose of the American Recovery and Reinvestment act is to put contractors back to work.

"Our funding at the DOT is very low and this is really helping to get some funding back in the roadways, now contractors can hire workers back and help the economy," said Craig Solomon, with the Department of Transportation.

The county has completed the acquisition of right of way. The bid process will begin in about two months.
