Cherokee County awarded a $339,470 contract for intersection improvements at Alabama Road (Ga. 92) and Ragsdale Road/Claremore Drive in Woodstock.

The Board of Commissioners awarded the work to Bartow Paving Co. Inc., the lowest of nine bidders, to expand the intersection to include dual left-turn lanes, a dedicated through lane and a dedicated right-turn lane on the southbound approach of Ragsdale to Ga. 92.
