Lowndes County - Construction on a major interstate construction project has come to a halt, and the state doesn't have a company to finish the job.

The Georgia Department of Transportation kicked Douglas Asphalt off the I-75 expansion project after repeated delays.

The company won a 67-million dollar bid to widen the interstate between exit 18 in Lowndes County to the Cook County line in January of 2002.

The project was supposed to be finished in September 2004.

The completion date has been pushed back numerous times, and the project still isn't done.

A surety bonding company is now looking to see how much work remains on the project and trying to find a new contractor to finish the job.

The DOT isn't sure if they'll fine Douglas Asphalt.
