AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio reported earlier this week that the county would be seeing federal stimulus funds. The Chattanooga Times – Free Press is reporting that:
Chattooga and Gordon counties will share in $65.8 million in transportation projects that will be funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
"These projects will bring safety improvements and needed maintenance and support to roads, intersections and bridges around Georgia," Gov. Sonny Perdue said Monday in a news release. "The federal funds will make our roads safe and strengthen our transportation network."
Chattooga County projects include resurfacing and maintaining Gore-Subligna Road from Georgia Route 1 to County Road 29 (Johnston Road), and pavement rehabilitation on Narrows Road from County Road 337 to west of County Road 330. The cost for both projects is a little less than $732,000, the release said.
Gordon will get a little less than $250,000 to repave Craigtown Road from Georgia 225 to U.S. Highway 41.
Not on the list is a Catoosa project to widen Georgia 151 in front of the county’s new industrial park.
The state had placed the project on a list for state funding in 2011 or 2012 but pushed it back to 2018. Catoosa County officials were hoping the project would qualify for federal stimulus funds.
