By Steve Winslow Anchor/Reporter

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has awarded a total of 15 projects valued at $238.8 million during the month of May, including resurfacing, safety, bridge construction and widening and reconstruction for some projects in northeast Georgia.

The press release from GDOT this week says that the largest single investment, valued at approximately $122 million, is for the widening and reconstruction of 6 miles of State Route 20 from Post Road to east of North Corners Parkway in Forsyth County. 

The second largest resurfacing project will cover 4.8 miles of I-85 from SR 140 (Jimmy Carter Blvd) to Steve Reynolds Blvd in Gwinnett County. This project is valued at $25.1 million.  The largest project across Georgia approved in May is for work along I-75 in Fulton and Clayton counties.

One bridge construction project, valued at $4 million or 2% of the total awarded funds, involves construction of a 0.26-mile bridge and approaches on Martin Farm Road (CS 833) over Suwanee Creek in Gwinnett County.

The May awards bring the total construction contracts for Fiscal Year 2024 to $2.4 billion. This total includes TIA, Design-Bid-Build, and locally administered projects. Fiscal Year 2024 began July 1, 2023.  

GDOT officials say the Bids for Design-Bid-Build projects were received on May 17, and contracts were awarded to the lowest qualified bidders on May 31.
