MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – State Senator Larry Walker (R-Perry) is happy to announce road improvements in Bleckley, Laurens and Pulaski counties.

The money comes from Georgia Department of Transportation contracts.

“These three GDOT awards represent another step forward to ensuring our infrastructure is reliable for years to come,” said Sen. Walker. “I am happy to see GDOT recognizing the need for improvements in these counties and look forward to the completion of these projects for motorists around our state.”

Nearly seven miles of State Route 26 from Old Milledgeville Road to State Route 87 in Bleckley County will be resurfaced.

That project is worth more than $2 million.

In Laurens County, Stateroute 126 from State Route 117 to State Route 46 will be resurfaced, costing about $2 million.

And in Pulaski County, State Route 230 from south of State Route 27 to the Dodge County line will be resurfaced, which will cost more than $2.5 million.

The projects will hopefully be finished by the end of March 2018.

These projects were advertised in March, bids were received on April 21, and contracts were awarded on May 5.
