Madison County commissioners learned Dec. 26 that the state government has approved four roads for resurfacing in 2012.
Funding for the roads will be provided through the Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant (LMIG) program, formerly known as the Local Assistance for Roads Program (LARP).
Each commissioner applied for work in his district, providing a first and second road choice to the state. District 1 commissioner Stanley Thomas submitted Sanford Nicholson Road as his top choice. But that road has since been resurfaced.
The state agreed to resurface the other four roads submitted by commissioners. Those roads include: Friendship Church Road, 2.96 miles, from Hwy. 98 to Hwy. 174; Helican Springs Road, 1.45 miles, from Sanford Road to the Clarke County line; J. David Road, 1 mile, from Booger Hill Road to Hammond Williams Road; and Foote McClellan Road, 2.2 miles, from Hwy. 72 to Spratlin Mill Road.
