New construction underway on Dawson Road

New construction underway on Dawson Road

Construction is underway in Albany on Dawson Road near the intersection of Old Dawson Road.

What use to be a Hibachi Grill Buffet will now be an Auto Zone.

Economic Development officials say they're excited about retail growth in Northwest Albany."We still think we're the capitol of Southwest Georgia. So people drive here for shopping and drive here for tourism. So that's a big part of it. So to have tbhose resources available when people come to Albany only makes our star shine a little brighter," said Justin Strickland, the Albany-Dougherty EDC President.

A Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks are also being built on Dawson Road. Folks at Autozone say the other three Albany locations will remain open.
