After two years of planning construction is underway to beautify entrances into Cordele.  

County leaders and state representatives broke ground today at exit 101 off I-75 on Cordele's Gateway beautification project.  All four quadrants at exits 99 and 101 will be planted with flowers and trees and a welcome to Cordele wall. The $550,000 project will be paid for by The Georgia Department of Transportation, City of Cordele, and Cordele Tourism committee.

"You know we've got to focus on beautifying our community and cleaning it up and this is just the first phase," said Monica Simmons.       

Intersections at exits 97 and 102 and other entrances not on I-75 will also undergo improvements. The construction should be finished by the spring.
