Residents in one area of Albany devastated by a powerful tornado earlier this year will soon see a very noticeable improvement in their neighborhood.
Commissioners okayed spending $2 million widening and adding new features for two major thoroughfares in Radium Springs--Skywater and Azalea Drives.
The commission's chair believes the money will help accelerate the recovery process, adding bike lanes connecting the area to the Flint River trails project.
This is a reallocation of special local option sales tax V funds drawn mostly from completed county projects that had some money left over.
Commissioners say this is Phase One of a three-part plan for improving roads in the subdivision.
Residents should expect work to begin within the next 90 days.
