CARROLLTON, Ga. – Work could begin soon on resurfacing State Route (SR) 100 in Carroll County. Georgia DOT has just awarded a contract to E.R. Snell Contractor, Inc. of Snellville, Georgia, valued at little over two million dollars for a construction project to resurface a 9-mile portion of the highway. The project includes 8.910 miles of milling and plant mix resurfacing on SR 100, beginning south of SR 166 and extending to the Haralson County line.
“This project and others like it in northwest Georgia add up to these two things- better mobility and a better quality of life for all the area’s residents,” said Dewayne Comer, district engineer at the Georgia DOT office in Cartersville.
This resurfacing project is scheduled to be completed by the end of March 2019, at a construction cost of $2,028,887. Information on construction and lane closure schedules on this project will be forthcoming before work begins.

The Georgia Department of Transportation continues its 2018 construction program.
