LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

A proposed $2.8 million resurfacing project for six Lee County roads has been put on hold. 

The Lee County Commission decided that for now, it will focus on smaller plans.

On Tuesday night, commissioners did approve an Oxford Constructions bid of almost $1.5 million to pave and resurface nearly five miles of Armena Road.

County Co-manager Mike Sistruck said this year already they have paved more than seven miles of road and the project hasn't been called off. 

"We just wanted to back up a little bit and get caught up some. I think they are gonna re-look at this again at the first of next year to still propose to have these roads done," said Sistruck.

Roads that are almost finished with resurfacing are Martindale, North Hampton and West Field. They should be complete within the next few days.
