Lee County road improvements discussed

LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Lee County leaders are trying to get the most out of limited money for road improvements.  They're prioritizing which projects they want to get to first.

They have about $1.4 million in local sales tax money available.  The roads at the top of their list will qualify for state and federal money too.

"Anytime that we can get funds from the DOT or the Federal Government, we get more bang for our buck, and that makes it higher on the priority list," said Planning and Engineering Director Bob Alexander.

Public works studied local roads that need resurfacing and decided that Old Smithville Road, Pinewood Road and Quail Pines Road need to get done first.
