LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Lee County leaders hope a road project, years in the planning, will help economic development in the county.     

Right now, Cedric Street runs from Highway 19 to Old Leesburg Road.  This project will extend it to Lovers Lane Road, near the Northhampton Road subdivision.     

Sales tax revenue and a $300,000 DOT grant will pay for the million dollar project.  Lee County commissioners say the new road will ease traffic congestion.   

"Philema road is always bottlenecked all the time.  It's going to take a lot of relief off of that.  They can come through here quicker than they can going through Philema Road going into Albany.  There's a lot of cars that come through here, and now it's going to take relief on Lover's Lane Road and Northhampton and all that subdivision back there, they'll be able to come here," said Lee County Commission Chair Morris Leverett.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
