Roads and streets set to be repaired in Macon-Bibb County
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Drivers will not have to avoid pot holes and other damages on the streets and roads in Macon-Bibb County very soon.
Macon-Bibb County received almost one and a half million dollars from the Local Maintenance Improvement Grant Program (LMIG) to fix roads throughout the county. The state grant provides funds to local governments to make improvements in their cities. Some areas being repaired include James Street, Monroe Street, Canterbury Road, and Bowman Road.
“These are all local streets. The streets are our responsibility, but they know that local communities find it hard to get the money that they need to resurface roads and so they want to help us maintain our roads as well as we can,” says Macon-Bibb County Engineer David Fortson.
The Macon-Bibb County Commission authorized Mayor Robert Reichert to execute an agreement with Womack Paving Inc. to fix roads throughout the county. Repairs are expected to be completed within three to four months.
