ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - A long-awaited road project in one of the most congested areas in Albany and Lee County has been listed for bids.

The Westover extension project was revised for bids Thursday by the Georgia Department of Transportation.

This project has been in the planning stages for more than 20 years, but it appears finally ready to actually be built.

20 years it’s been talked about and planned. But now GDOT is letting bids for the Westover Extension. A roundabout and two bridges will be built connecting Westover near the Albany Mall to Ledo Road.
