BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - Folks in Bainbridge celebrated the completion of a paving project that's been three years in the making.
It took workers about two weeks to pave the dirt road on the intersection of Dothan Road and Carters Mill Road.
Relieved drivers and homeowners helped cut the ribbon to say a final farewell to the inconvenient dirt road.
Bainbridge Resident Eva Phillips said, “It's been terrible. It's been really bad. It's been a long time coming to be done like this. There have been potholes. You can't keep anything clean, the dust.”
Decatur County used a $500,000 grant from Georgia's Community Development Block Grant to pay for the improvements.
