Washington D.C.-- Good news for those who are anxious for State Route 133 to get wider from Albany to Valdosta.

U.S Senators Saxby Chambliss and Zell Miller announced the widening of Highway 133 will be included in the 2004 Fiscal Year Transportation Bill. The Colquitt County section will get $5.2 million.

"I'm very please we could secure the initial funding for the project. We're going to hold our feet to the fire until we get this project completed," said Chambliss.

Nineteen million dollars will go toward Transportation Funds for South and Coastal Georgia. The Moultrie Streetscape Project will get $500,000 for Phase Two.

The City of Albany will receive a million dollars for an  intermodal facility.

Five-hundred thousand dollars will be for a regional transit project in Quitman, Clay, Randolph and Stewart counties. And the Leesburg Train Depot will get $300,000 for renovation and restoration.
