SPLOST 2016 for Roads, Sidewalks & Bridges

Roads, sidewalks and bridge projects with estimated cost and proposed project description.

Road Resurfacing and Road Shoulder Widening
Estimated cost: $10,662,846
Resurfacing of at least 10 miles of roads per year for at least five years for a total of 50 miles will take place in various locations throughout Glynn County.  Resurfacing priorities will be based on a Pavement Evaluation Management System, PEMS.  Additionally asphalt shoulders 2 feet in width should be considered on all arterial and collector roads evaluated for resurfacing to prevent dangerous edge drop off issues.


Road Reconstruction and Resurfacing on Old Jesup Road near Everett City
Estimated cost: $850,000 
This section of Old Jesup Road is near to catastrophic condition due to failures of the underlying base materials.  This road will be rebuilt in place and require removal of the existing asphalt.  There is no right-of-way outside of the existing footprint of the road, which runs through a cypress swamp.  Several options are available to restore a stabilized base including, but not limited to, concrete, or recycled in place road stabilization


Canal Rd. Project Improvements
Estimated cost: $4,000,000
This project will tie into the improvements and widening that were installed with the Sam’s Club project.  The remaining section out to Glynco Parkway will be widened to four lanes, drainage pipe required for current longitudinal ditches, multi-use trail, and intersection improvement at Glynco Parkway.
