STONECREST, GA – The City of Stonecrest will resurface 7.49 lane miles of streets through funds allocated from the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) revenue and funds secured from the Georgia Department of Transportation’s (GDOT) Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant (LMIG) program.
The city received $548,187.97 in transportation funding through GDOT’s 2022 LMIG program in December 2022 and an additional $559,844.39 from the 2023 LMIG program this month.
The awarded amounts were based on Stonecrest’s population and road centerline mileage. The LMIG funds will be used to supplement the City’s 2023 Street Repair and Repaving Program, which is supported through SPLOST funds.
“Stonecrest officials are committed to enhancing the quality of life for our residents and visitors thoughout the city,” said Mayor Jazzmin Cobble. “In our Fiscal Year 23 Budget, City Council approved the allocation of $9.3 million in capital improvements and SPLOST funding to support roadway/transportation and park improvement projects. GDOT’s LMIG funds will assist us in our goal of ensuring safer travels for all motorists and supplying quality parks throughout our recreation and parks system.”
Stonecrest submitted a list of 38 street segments for resurfacing to GDOT as part of the City’s 2023 LMIG application. The Stonecrest City Council will vote on the contract for the 2023 paving program at its January 23 meeting.
