MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – With new stores in the North Macon Plaza, Macon-Bibb Commissioners approved a project to widen Bass Road to traffic flow.

Bass Road will go from two to four lanes.

The Georgia Department of Transportation will allocate $30.5 million, while more than $5 million will come from county SPLOST funds.

Commissioners also approved a $750,000 SPLOST project to resurface Macon-Bibb’s tennis courts. The project includes new LED lighting.

Commissioners say the county misses out on millions of dollars from not hosting tennis tournaments because of the courts’ bad shape.
