Roadwork similar to what was done on Dawson Forest Road last fall is now planned for three additional roads, says Public Works Director David McKee. McKee presented before the board of commissioners at its last work session plans for full-depth reclamations of Tanner Road, Kelly Bridge Road and Steve Tate Hwy. Numbers presented by McKee show that the three roads, totaling 12.2 miles, have greater than 30 percent base failure, which is below industry standards and can jeopardize the safety of Dawson County residents and visitors. The commission previously approved the use of SPLOST VI revenue funds for the repairs and was asked to vote on May 4 to award a contract to a company to begin the work.
