Information Contact: David Pelton

PURPOSE:

To consider accepting up to $175,255.00 in funds from the Georgia Department of Transportation for pavement marking improvements on certain county roads; and
To consider reserving $175,000.00 of SPLOST funds from line item 1B - Federal and State Transportation Project Matching Funds for Transportation Purposes as the local match; and
To consider authorizing the Chief Executive Officer to execute all necessary documents to complete the project.

 

NEED/IMPACT:

GDOT Safety Action Plan funds are available to DeKalb County for updates to roadway pavement markings and/or the addition of raised pavement markers certain on county roads.  In the limited time available to prepare an application for these funds, road segments that were in immediate need of new pavement markings were picked from a GDOT list of eligible roads. GDOT approved the application and the selected roadway segments are shown on the attached map and list.  It is proposed that the work be completed by an existing on-call pavement marking contractor.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

SPLOST funds in the amount of $175,000.00 will cover the cost of the county match.
