NEED/IMPACT:
The Georgia DOT's Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant Program (LMIG) provides funding subject to appropriation by the Legislature, for local resurfacing of streets. The County has several hundred miles of streets rated 30 or worse in the Pavement Condition Index, which warrant resurfacing. The Georgia DOT has typically had funding available to resurface about 20 miles of those streets each year.

Typically, because of the amount of milling, base repair, and other work required to complete the resurfacing projects, the County's share of the local match is usually 50% or more.
