(The Center Square) – The Georgia Department of Transportation said it awarded 23 projects valued at more than $110.8 million in May.

The most significant investment went to Reeves Construction Company for a roughly $10 million resurfacing project. The work includes more than 10.9 miles of milling, resurfacing and shoulder rehabilitation on U.S. Highway 25/State Route 121 from the Jenkins County line to south of State Route 24 in Burke County.

The contract is one of 14 resurfacing agreements, representing about 64% of the funds awarded.

Georgia Bridge and Concrete received the largest bridge construction project, a roughly $6 million award. The work covers more than 0.4 miles of bridge and approaches construction on State Route 82 over the Middle Oconee River in Barrow and Jackson counties.

The contract is one of five bridge construction projects, representing about 25% of the money awarded.

Construction projects represent about 8% of the awarded funds. The remaining 3% went to a rehabilitation project in Fulton County.

A design-build project worth roughly $35 million was awarded to Archer Western Construction and Heath & Lineback Engineering. The work will add an auxiliary lane along Interstate 285 westbound (the perimeter) between Roswell Road and Riverside Drive.

The project also includes replacing a bridge on Mt. Vernon Highway over I-285 and widening the perimeter over long Island Drive to allow for the auxiliary lane.
