A lot of money for roads
Millions in grants will help county pay for improving Gateway
In this Herald file photo from 2011, a construction crew is shown working on drainage and preparation for paving the interchange at the intersection of U.S. 67 and Ga. Hwy 46 that was completed in November.
The Bulloch County Board of Commissioners in partnership with the Development Authority of Bulloch County recently successfully competed for and received $5 million in state and federal grants. The windfall will pay for infrastructure improvements necessary for the construction of the new Great Dane Trailers manufacturing facility in phase two of the Gateway Industrial Park, just south of Statesboro. "The money is being used for roadwork around the location as well as for storm water drainage including retention ponds," said Bulloch County manager Tom Couch.
