Dawson working to repair roads in Dawson

Dawson Road Projects Update

DAWSON, Ga. (WALB) - The City of Dawson has been working hard to fix damaged roads in the city.

Interim City Manager James Woods says that they are currently in the process of getting bids for the LMIG project.

LMIG stands for Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant. This is the money that the city received from the Georgia Department of Transportation to go towards repairing the roads.

Woods says that the grant is over $100,000.

Woods says there are about 7 roads that the city will be using this grant on. Lee and Randolph streets are the two that need it most.

“If we don’t do something to them then we are going to lose the base of the road and if we lose the base of the road then basically you have to go back and the cost to repave that road is as if you were rebuilding a brand new road to start with," says Woods.

Woods still encourages everyone to call Dawson City Hall if they see a road that is need of repairs in the city.
