Around $8 million dollars worth of roadwork and public works projects are beginning in the next few months to include these projects:
The widening of Highway 292 West from Orange Street to the city limits. A new lane will be added to the road which runs in front of Vidalia High School. McLendon Enterprises of Vidalia has won the contract from the state Department of Transportation.
Adams Street will cost an estimated $1.6 million. Once water and sewer lines are relocated, curbs and sidewalks will be upgraded and the road will be repaved. Work is expected to start in the Fall.
At the cost of about $400,000, a rennovation project along North Main and McIntosh Streets will provide new sidewalks and beautification.
The city council has also okayed a proposal to spend up to $290,000 in sales tax collections to build an outdoor amphitheater on the former site of the Vidalia Police Department. The council also okayed a $180,000 economic development loan to help a local startup company called WorldTrac produce and market a tracing device for luggage and other property. It expects to create up to a dozen jobs.
