Crews will be repairing the roads, sidewalks and park in the Radium Springs area.

This project has been in the works for two years after the January 22, 2017 tornadoes devastated the area.

It had been put on hold for a year after two land owners would not sell land the county needed to complete the project.

But starting this week, crews with Oxford Construction will be in the area beginning the road repairs.

“They’re working actually on this project now. And we’re excited about it, we’re glad to know we’re finally going to get some things done in the Radium Springs area that need to be done,” said Assistant Public Works Director Chucky Mathis.

The $2 million is coming from SPLOST funds. Plus the county will be able to use a $500,000 grant they received on top of that money to do the project.

The project is expected to take several months to complete.
