ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Commissioners from five South Georgia counties are banding together to get highway 133 widened. The project has already been underway for years, but now the State Department of transportation is tightening its budget and re-prioritizing projects.

Dougherty County commissioners singed a resolution in support of four laning Highway 133 from Albany to Valdosta. Chairman Jeff Sinyard says he hopes it will make it to the top the list for the state. He said, "Completing 133 may be one of the strongest things we can do for economic development, as well as helping secure Southwest Georgia as an economic base in terms of regionalism."

Sinyard says Senators Saxby Chambliss, Johnny Isakson and Congressman Sanford Bishop support the project. The resolution is also expected to be signed by Brooks, Colquitt, Lowndes and Worth Counties and will be presented to a DOT board member next week.
