Tax’s failure could mean a status quo for transportation

A voter rejection of the proposed 1 percent sales tax for transportation may send a sour message to politicians concerning taxes. But what does it mean concerning roads?

Asphalt will still get poured: A major project, the widening of Ga. 347 from McEver Road to Old Winder Highway, is planned to start in South Hall next year.
