Middle Georgia roads are about to get millions of dollars in upgrades.
The Georgia Department of Transportation said it announced bids that included:
about $3.6 million to resurface more than 15 miles of Ga. 87 in Monroe County, from near Taylor Road to the Butts County line. Work will be completed by August 2014.
about $2.7 million to widen 2.68 miles of U.S. 319 north of East Dublin and extending north of Willie Wood Drive. The work is scheduled to be complete by March 2015.
about $2.5 million to repave more than 12 miles of Ga. 26 in Laurens County, from Ga. 29 to the Johnson County line.
about $1.2 million to improve pavement markings in Bibb, Crawford and Peach Counties along Interstate 75.
about $434,000 to rebuild a bridge over Mosley Road in Peach County that runs over Mule Creek.
The agency deferred approval of bids to build a bridge and roads around it on Ga. 128 over the Flint River in Crawford and Taylor counties.
