On Tuesday, April 20, Henry County commissioners approved a resurfacing contract valued at $27.4 million — believed to be the largest resurfacing contract in county history. The contract covers 96 roads equaling roughly 80 miles of work.

The contract pulls from practically every dollar available to cover the cost. Remaining funds in SPLOST II, SPLOST III, and SPLOST IV contribute to the cost. Resurfacing dollars in SPLOST V and DOT LMIG funds also contribute. Finally, the general fund will cover the remaining $1.9 million.

E.R. Snell Contractor, Inc. of Snellville, GA submitted the low bid at $27,433,685.70. Because of the work volume, the contractor has 540 days (18 months) to complete the project.
