Work is about to restart
on a delayed road project that Lee County leaders hope will lead to new
Tuesday night Lee County Commissioners
approved a solution. There's a holding
pond on property at the northwest corner of this project.
They'll expand that pond to hold more runoff,
and then use the dirt they dig out to build the road. County leaders hope to restart work late this
week or early next week and have the road paved and ready for traffic by the
end of May.
County leaders say there
are commercial developers interested in building along the new road, and they
hope to get tenants in the area soon after the project is finished.
The Dougherty County side
of the Westover Extension is still several years away. It would connect Westover Boulevard to Ledo
Road under the Albany bypass.
