Work could begin soon on resurfacing State Route (SR) 301 in Dade County. The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has just awarded a contract to Northwest Georgia Paving Inc. of Calhoun, Georgia, valued at nearly $2.5 million for a construction project to resurface a 10-mile portion of the highway.
The project includes 10.340 miles of resurfacing and shoulder rehabilitation on SR 301, beginning at the southern end of the highway in Catoosa County by the Alabama State line and extending to the Alabama state 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 February 2018, at a construction cost of $2,472,559. Information on construction and lane closure schedules on this project will be forthcoming before work begins.
