Keysville Road to be repaved

Gov. Sonny Perdue said stimulus money will fund a $592,900 road project in Richmond County.

Crews will resurface Keysville Road from State Route 88 to the Burke County line, according to a news release Monday from the governor's office.

The resurfacing is part of $65.8 million in projects that the governor announced across the state. All are funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

It is Richmond County’s second stimulus-funded road project. Construction began on the $4 million resurfacing and shoulder reconstruction on about 10 miles of Deans Bridge Road between Sandy Run Creek and Tobacco Road this month.

Across the nation, about $48 billion has been set aside for transportation infrastructure through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. To track stimulus spending in Georgia, visit
