Work could begin soon on resurfacing Hwy 41 in Bartow County. Georgia DOT has recently awarded a contract to C.W. Matthews Contracting Company, Inc. of Marietta, Georgia, valued at little over three million dollars for a construction project to resurface a portion of the highway in Bartow County. The project includes 10.820 miles of milling, inlay and plant mix resurfacing on State Route 3/US 41, beginning south of Jones Street and extending to Piedmont Avenue.

“Transportation projects like this one continue to positively influence the lives of the residents of northwest Georgia by helping improve mobility and enhancing safety,” said Grant Waldrop, district engineer at the Georgia DOT office in Cartersville.

This resurfacing project is scheduled to be completed by the end of July 2019, at a construction cost of $3,227,367. Information on construction and lane closure schedules on this project will be forthcoming before work begins.
