Columbia County says it will pave many dirt roads

APPLING, Ga. (AP) - Columbia County officials say they intend to
pave dirt roads through rural communities despite the current
economic crunch.

The officials say they will use a combination of county funds
and a Community Development Block Grant - federal funds disbursed
by the state Department of Transportation. They say $750,000 has
been allocated to pave six dirt roads.

Officials concerned about the faltering economy temporarily
sacrificed some paving projects to help develop a $3.75 million
road contingency fund.
