|Vidalia seeks bids for port access road|
The Vidalia Town Council took action on several projects Tuesday night to move the town forward including the $1.5 million first phase of port construction.
The council voted to advertise for bids for a port access road.
"We've been working on this for almost 20 years," said Mayor Hyram Copeland. "As of this summer, we are going to start the process."
The complete port project will cost approximately $15 million and take three to four years to complete.
"This is an important part of our economic development and we have the support of state and federal representatives," he said.
Also on the town's to-do list were sewer improvements, overlaying and a biking trail.
The council awarded Suncoast Infrastructure the bid to overhaul 50-year old sewer infrastructure on Riverside, Linden and Concordia Avenue among other areas.
Copeland said the $432,000 project, funded by a LCDBG grant, will bring the town to 80 percent completion on sewer rehabilitation work.
Next on the list, Copeland announced that nine streets would be overlaid with accumulated sales tax dollars.
With $3.4 available for road work, Copeland said that Murray Drive, Cross Street, South Oak and Gillespie and others would be overlaid this summer at a cost of $1.4 million.
