LEESBURG, GA (WALB) - The city of Leesburg is taking a closer look at their transportation needs.

City council members approved funding a transportation study to give them an overall picture of what's needed.

The North Bypass is currently under construction and the West Bypass has been completed, but additional median openings are needed.

"There is places where we need to have median openings and additional roads that that tie in to both the West Bypass and the North Bypass and we need to plan where those roads are going to be," said Leesburg city manager Bob Alexander.

The study will cost $25,000, and the city will pay for $5,000 with SPLOST money.

Carter Sloope consulting engineers out of Albany will conduct the study, which city leaders hope to be complete by June.
