Feds award $24.8 million for Ga. 316 interchange

The federal government has awarded Georgia $24.8 million for a new Ga. 316 interchange in Barrow County.

The money will help pay for an interchange at Ga. 11 – an estimated 10,000 cars a day pass through the intersection. The state will build a bridge to allow Ga. 316 traffic to continue over Ga. 11. 

The work on Ga. 11 will extend about 0.4 miles. On SR 316, the work will span about 1.1 miles. 

Sens. Johnny Isakson and David Perdue announced the U.S. Department of Transportation grant late Thursday.
