Work could begin soon on resurfacing US 27/State Route 1 in Carroll County. Georgia DOT has recently awarded a contract to C.W. Matthews Contracting Co., Inc. of Marietta, Georgia, valued at little over two million dollars for a construction project to resurface a portion of the highway in Carroll County. The project includes 2.2 miles of milling, inlay and plant mix resurfacing on US 27, beginning north of Springdale Road and extending to Maple Street in Carroll County.

“This project and others like it in northwest Georgia add up to these two things – better mobility and better quality of life for all our residents,” said Grant Waldrop, district engineer at the Georgia DOT office in White.

This resurfacing project is scheduled to be completed by the end of February 2020, at a construction cost of $2,189,906. Information on construction and lane closure schedules on this project will be forthcoming before work begins.
