ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Things don't look promising for the widening project on Highway 133. A proposal to widen the road between Albany and Valdosta has been on the table for years.  

Last week, the DOT told Albany/Dougherty leaders they'll have to fight to get the project at the top of the list.

 "We even asked the question, has what we have done made a difference to this point?" asked Dougherty County Commission Chairman Jeff Sinyard. "And basically, we've got to resell the project all over again. Why 133 is important to Southwest Georgia and why it's important to get across to state and federal government for their funding."

Completing the four lane project between Albany and Valdosta will cost roughly $250 million.
