ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Georgia's Department of Transportation has taken the Highway 133 widening project off their priority list.

The project that would four lane Highway 133 between Albany and Valdosta via Moultrie still remains a high priority for state lawmakers who say the project could promote development. State leaders say they're reviewing their options for keeping the project viable.

"Perhaps the Transportation Bill in Congress will help, the economic stimulus package being proposed, perhaps looking at doing it a section at a time through the state DOT," said Rep. Ed Rynders, (R)-District 152.

State Representative Ed Rynders says the project may miss out on getting money under President-elect Obama's plan because it's not shovel ready. The multi-million dollar project is still in the planning stages.
