LOWNDES COUNTY, GA (WALB) -  Lowndes County commissioners are moving ahead with plans to pave the county's dirt roads.

Commissioners just approved a little over $205,000 from SPLOST VII revenue to be used for design work on Zipperer, Boring Pond, and Coppage roads.

It's the first step in getting the roads paved. One resident who lives on Boring Pond Road said she's looking forward to it.

"I'm happy, very happy," said Chrsitine Young, who has lived on Boring Pond Road for around 15 years. "With the road being dusty, a lot of dust, and then if it rains you have a lot of washouts and things that you have to deal with."

The Design work is expected to start soon, but the county has not set a date for when the actual paving will begin or when it will be completed.
