LEE CO., GA (WALB) - Lee County leaders are moving forward with a major road project to improve east/west travel for emergency vehicles and drivers.
Tuesday night, county commissioners agreed to pay $30,000 to hire companies to conduct archaeological, endangered species, and environmental surveys for the Forrester Parkway Extension.
"So we've been again acquiring those right of ways on the South end of the project the Westover portion that don't have any of those wetland concerns," said Rick Muggridge, Lee County Chairman. "So it's just the next step in the process to move ahead."
Chairman Muggridge hopes the surveys will be done in the next two months, so the next phase of the project can begin.
