The Georgia Department of Transportation has awarded more contracts for road work in Northwest Georgia.
Marietta-based C.W. Matthews Contracting Co. was the low bidder for an 8.6-mile federal resurfacing project that runs from just south of Georgia Highlands College in Floyd County to a little past Stephens Road north of Cedartown.
Another recent federal project involves the repaving of U.S. 278, Nathan Dean Parkway, mostly in Polk County. Calhoun-based Northwest Georgia Paving Inc. was the low-bidder at just under $6.5 million.
The project starts at Ga. 101 and runs south to just over the Paulding County line.
GDOT also awarded a contract for a bridge rehab project on State Route 136 over the Conasauga River in Gordon County.
The low bid was submitted by Comanche Construction LLC of Marietta in the amount of $1,063,672.
According to GDOT, the expected project completion date is scheduled to be Oct. 31 of this year.
