Stimulus funds pay to pave Kings Road

The Department of Transportation will pave Kings Road in Pike County using federal stimulus money. Funding for the project will come directly from the American Infrastructure Recovery Program passed in Washington, D.C., to help stimulate the economy and lessen the impact of the recession. Kings Road runs between the Upson County line and Highway 109 and is about 3.8 miles long. The work will include patching, leveling the existing roadway, resurfacing, re-striping and leveling and re-working the shoulders for the entire length of the road in Pike County. ’This is a good road to get re-paved as it desperately needs it. Many of our other paved roads also need re-surfacing but we can only do them as money is made available to the county,’ said Todd Goolsby of the county road department. ‘We submitted a rather lengthy number of roads to be re-paved and re-built to this program. This is the first response we have had on our requests.’
