Multi-billion transportation project will affect drivers

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Taxpayers had a chance to learn about road projects a proposed new sales tax would pay for.

The Department of Transportation held a public forum Monday night in Albany. Officials talked about transportation projects in 14 area counties that would split around $150 million if voters approve a new one-percent sales tax.

In Albany, the projects would include improvements to the Clark Avenue extension,  Dawson road, and around the airport.

"We would hope people would turn out to find out what the projects are and give their comments and understand exactly what the process is and what the impact would be to the 14 county region," said Albany Engineering Director, Bruce Maples.

The sales tax referendum will be on the ballot next July. The DOT will hold similar meetings in Camilla Tuesday and Bainbridge Wednesday.
