Cook County - Government and DOT officials traveled to South Georgia today to begin a 126 Million Dollar project on Interstate 75. The project is part of the Governor's 15 point 5 Billion Dollar Fast Forward Program to accelerate the widening of I-75 throughout Georgia.
Governor Sonny Perdue arrived in Cook County this morning to break ground on a new expansion project on Interstate-75. "It's going to be 10 miles of economic development projects, widening I-75. Obviously it helps with congestion, it also helps with tourism when people can get to you easier," said Governor Perdue
The 126 million dollar project will add 10 miles to the 40 miles of current construction underway from the Florida Border, up through Lowndes County to exit 39 in Adel. "Our goal is to complete three lanes on both sides all the way from Crisp County/Dooly to the Florida line."
To meet this goal, the new project will also create an additional north and southbound lane as well as four bridges and exits. "Again this is helping to complete our 3 lane vision for 75 in both directions, 6 lanes total throughut all of South Georgia."
This project together with the Lowndes County Expansion Project and a similar project in Cordele will be the largest highway construction project in the history of Southwest Georgia.
The Governor and DOT Officials hope the project will be completed in 2009.
