State Representative Dale Zorn announced on Thursday that the
state will spend nearly $12 million repairing and repaving roadways in Monroe
County in 2014.
Zorn announced the following projects:
• $3.5 million to improve I-75 from the state line to I-275
• $450,000 to improve Wabash Road at North Macon Creek
• $330,000 to improve Wabash Road from Cone Road to North
• $5 million to improve Samaria Road
• $280,000 to establish traffic signals where Vivian Road
intersects Cole Road
• $1,420,000 to improve Tuttle Hill Road from Ostrander Road
to Oakville Road
"The transportation town hall I hosted in 2011 brought in
almost 500 people from all across the county.
People even brought in damaged hubcaps and rims to show how our awful
roads were affecting their vehicles from their daily commute. I've worked hard on a lot of issues, but
funding to help fix this problem is one solution that will affect everyone who
lives in, works in, or passes through Monroe County," Zorn said in a press
