Macon-Bibb engineering looks to fix some roads

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – More than a dozen Macon-Bibb County roads may have work done to them.

The Georgia Department of Transportation is giving the county’s engineering department $50,000 to have roads re-striped, raise pavement markers, and update signage.

Engineering Director David Fortson says that he’s asking the county to match GDOT’s grant with at least 15 percent of SPLOST dollars.

The road project costs $65,000.

“This one is primarily dealing with the road centerline and road edge lines. Some of the projects in the past where we’ve done some re-striping, we’ve done a lot of crosswalk repainting,” he said.

Fortson says they’re looking into other options for future road repairs, including grants.
