Georgia Department of Transportation

Contractors work on the new Interstate 95 northbound bridge over I-16 in Georgia. 

(The Center Square) — The Georgia Department of Transportation awarded another $199 million in June for road projects statewide, but state officials warned that road project costs are increasing.

The state allocated the money to 37 projects across The Peach State. The board considered 53 projects in June and rejected 12; four others were withdrawn.
