CAIRO, GA (WALB) - Construction is now underway on the main road into Tired Creek Lake.

Crews are in the process of widening the road and moving power lines back.

Right now the road is just a dirt road, but soon, it will be a paved two lane road.

Grady County Manager Carlos Tobar says the lake could open on the north side before the road is complete.

"At two hundred and eighteen feet the lake will open and we have warned our citizens that the road may not be ready in time," said Tobar. "The north side had to be done first because of the bridge."

The lake project started four years ago. Tobar says it's nice to be near competition of the project.
