ALBANY, GA (WALB) - There is still no money available for a major road project in South Georgia. The Department of Transportation wants to make sure they're ready to go when the funding comes.

Improving Highway 133 is part of the Governor's Road Improvement Program. The DOT proposes 4-laning the highway between Albany and Moultrie at a cost of more than $100-million.

Such an expensive four-part project requires a lot of preparation including clearing environmental issues. "We look at where our wetlands are, where our historic properties are, if we have any archeology on the project and we determine where our proposed road approximately would go," said DOT Assistant Program Delivery Engineer Michael Haithcock.

More than 50 residential and commercial properties would be displaced by the project. Tuesday night, the DOT got input from citizens. There's still no word on when the project might begin.
