“Georgia’s current transportation infrastructure has needed some attention for quite some time and thanks to the support of legislators like Sen. Burke, we have been able to begin improving the conditions of our roadways,” said Jay Roberts, GDOT planning director. “It is our hope that we can continue to make strides in ensuring the safety of citizens throughout Georgia by not only maintaining our current infrastructure, but also by constructing new projects designed to ease traffic flows in some of our more congested areas.”
