The Georgia Department of Transportation has awarded contracts to make road improvements. 

DOT is giving $85 million toward road improvements extending across the state of Georgia.

According to DOT officials, $31 million goes toward rebuilding the Bartow County interchange.  The improvements will take place where U.S. Highway 41 meets U.S. Highway 441. 

The state is also in the works to get six new permanent bridges as part of the $31 million. The bridges are expected to be completed by December 2017. 

The roadway of State Route 133, which links Albany and Valdosta, is going to be widened.  DOT is giving $35 million to widen 11 miles of the route. 

The remaining money will go toward an overpass in Gwinnett County and a bridge spanning the Flint River between Upson and Talbot County.
