RICHMOND COUNTY, GA (WFXG) - Flooding has hurt businesses on Skyview Drive in Richmond County whenever it rained, but on Thursday a step has been taken to address that.
The Engineering department tells FOX 54 that around 75 percent of the project will be for widening pipes underground and the remaining will be fixing the infrastructure.
This has hurt businesses for years according to one commissioner and he says the city can address it now because it has the funds.
"When you do these things and do it right, it's not cheap. This project itself will be somewhere between $700 to $800,000 to maybe a million plus as we start going through it and catching up to the things that we don't know is there," says Commissioner Sammie Sias.
Commissioner Sias says the project is expected to begin within the next 60 days. One thing to mention, the engineering team says no roads will be closed around this area because of this project.
