Albany - Department of Transportation workers say progress on roads, will make Georgia more marketable to industry.

One project in planning is four-laning U-S highway 133 from Albany to Valdosta. It will make access to I-75 easier and MCLB more BRAC-proof during future rounds of base closures.

Although rail-transportation is becoming a more desirable form of travel, it appears it will be tabled until it's necessary and financially feasible.

Harold Linnenkohl, GDOT Commissioner says, "It's hard to say, let's put a lot of money into something that today has such small use, limited use. Although we know that down the road, we know we're going to have to have that."

A public meeting of the Metropolitan planning Organization to discuss transportation needs will be held April 20th at 8:30 AM in Planning and Development conference room 380. Call 229-438-3907 for more information.
