Lee County -- A heavily traveled and dangerous Lee County road will soon be getting a long awaited face lift.
Saturday morning, Lee County Commissioners along with State Representative Ed Rynders announced the resurfacing and widening project on Graves Springs Road.
Local leaders say this road construction will turn an unsafe road into a safe one thanks in part to a push from local legislators for the improvements.
"We've had some serious accidents on this road and all I can say is that without the help of our legislative delegation coming with us to Atlanta to sit down with Mr. Linnenkohl that this project may not have happened today," said Lee County Commissioner Ed Duffy.
The 5 1/2 mile project will extend the entire length of Graves Springs Road from Highway 32 to Philema Road.
The road will be widened by two feet and resurfaced with a new layer of asphalt.
The $670,000 project is scheduled to begin March 10th and should last through the end of April.
