ATLANTA (AP) The Georgia Department of Transportation is moving forward with $20 million in projects to build new bridges and resurface roads across the state.

The contracts awarded by the DOT board March 2 cover 23 different projects. The largest is to build two bridges across the New river and Clear Creek in Heard County. A Marietta company won the $4.9 million contract.

Bridges also will be built for $2.2 million in Hall County and $1.1 million in Tattnall County.

The rest of the money will go toward road improvement projects, such as $800,000 to resurface 12 mi. (19 km) of roads in Bleckley and Dodge counties.

The Georgia DOT said it has started 172 new construction projects valued at more than $642 million in the fiscal year that started July 1.
