CAIRO — Grady County is fast-tracking a project to re-pave a Calvary road in rough condition.

County commissioners unanimously approved a $15,000 non-budgeted purchase of asphalt to re-pave McCraeville Road on Tuesday morning.

Road department crews are already mobilized along McCraeville Road as the aging street has been restored of natural wear and tear in recent days.

County Administrator Buddy Johnson said it wouldn't make sense to leave the roadwork unfinished.

"We could let it sit in this condition, but it's pretty rough," Johnson said. "Let's face it: we're there, so let's finish this so they can go work somewhere else."

There is no projected completion date for project.

Funds for the project will come from the 2014 special purpose local option sales tax (SPLOST).

Two bids were received for the project, and the commissioners voted to approved a purchase from CMI, Inc.
