Construction to start on Westover Road Extension

LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Lee County commissioners selected a company to handle a delayed road project.     

The county initially planned to handle the Westover Extension connecting Ledo Road to Fussell Road itself. Rainy weather delayed the work. Commissioners chose Oxford Construction Company to handle the job. Their $322,000 dollar bid is $105,000 less than the county initially budgeted.  

"Competition is a beautiful thing when you bid things out you get competition," said Ron Rabun, County Manager. "People get their pencils sharp and it resulted in a good deal for the county. A good use of our money and the taxpayer's dollars, I think."       

The leftover money will be used for existing road projects.  Work should start Friday. It must be finished by the end of September for the county to use a $250,000 dollar state grant to help pay for it.
